TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man who admitted possessing hundreds of child pornography images and videos is now headed to state prison.

The state attorney general’s office says Burt Harvey-Martinez received a six-year sentence on Friday. The 35-year-old Elizabeth man had pleaded guilty to distributing child porn.

Harvey-Martinez was among several people arrested in July 2016 as part of a joint investigation that targeted people who share child pornography on file-sharing networks.

Detectives downloaded several files of child porn from an IP address traced to Harvey-Martinez. They then executed a search warrant at his home and seized his laptop computer.

Authorities say they found nearly 1,500 child porn images and videos in a shared folder on the computer.
