CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Charles City man who police say had pornographic images of children on his cellphone has been sentenced to up to two years in prison.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2e3b5Aa ) that 53-year-old Jeffrey Kirk was charged in May with seven counts of misdemeanor sexual exploitation of a minor. Investigators say he had downloaded photos and videos of child pornography on his phone from the internet.

He pleaded guilty to one count in September. In exchange, the other six counts were dropped. He was sentenced Monday.

After his release from prison, Kirk will be under supervision for 10 years, and he must register as a sex offender.
