Posted:
EAST ST. LOUIS (WREX) -

A 71-year-old Wood River, Illinois, man was sentenced to ten years in prison for the distribution of child pornography Wednesday.

Charlie Jarrett also received a fine of $17,500 and will have to pay $10,000 in restitution. He pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Police say Jarrett was caught using a peer-to-peer file sharing network to distribute the pornography. The FBI then searched Jarrett's house, discovering over 2,600 images and 60 videos containing child porn.

Jarrett admitted he downloaded the images over the course of eight years and shared them with others.
