MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A man who received a suspended sentence after he was charged in an undercover sex sting has now been sentenced to the Montana State Prison after prosecutors say he posted child pornography on social media.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1TGd8Tx ) that Christopher Michael Cooper was arrested in 2013 after traveling to Missoula with plans to meet someone he believed was a 12-year-old girl for sex. He received a 25-year suspended prison sentence in March 2015.

He was arrested a month later for posting child pornography on multiple Twitter accounts.

Cooper pleaded guilty in January to violating the terms of his probation and to eight new felony charges. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison with 15 suspended. The judge also changed his previous sentence to 25 years in prison with 10 suspended.
