Columbus Man Sentenced to 8 Years in Federal Prison for Child Porn

Posted: Updated:

 A Columbus man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for possession and distribution of child pornography.

United States District Attorney Deborah Gilg says 41-year-old Edward Johnson has been given 96 months in prison, after which he will be required to serve 15 years of supervised release and register as a sex offender.

Authorities say Johnson was investigated after a website reported his IP address for displaying two images of child pornography on the site.

A search warrant was served at Johnson's home in August 2013 after the Nebraska State Patrol says he sent child porn to an undercover officer who was posing as a teenage girl.

According to officials, a forensic review of Johnson's computer found 200 videos of child pornography.
