BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A railroad worker from Illinois has been sentenced in federal court in North Dakota for child pornography.

Forty-six-year-old James Monego was charged in North Dakota because tips led authorities to multiple hotels in the state in which Monego stayed while working for BNSF Railway.

U.S. Attorney Chris Myers says Monego traded child porn images and videos with others via the internet.

Monego pleaded guilty and was sentenced this week to serve a little over 10 years in prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay $1,500 in restitution.
