FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man who authorities say forced a teenager with special needs to watch child pornography with him will spend more than seven years in federal prison.

Richard Allain, of Framingham, was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court. The MetroWest Daily News of Framingham (https://bit.ly/2uqyRxX ) reports that he will spend seven years and three months in a federal prison.

The 56-year-old Allain pleaded guilty in March to receipt and possession of child pornography.

Framingham police say Allain threatened to kill the 14-year-old boy after forcing him to watch child pornography with him. He denied threatening the victim.

The case was moved to federal court as a part of Project Child Safe, a federal initiative designed to protect children from exploitation and abuse.
