Longview man gets 15 years in child porn case

TYLER, Texas (AP) - An East Texas man caught with more than 1,000 sexually explicit images of children has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

Prosecutors on Wednesday announced the penalty for 51-year-old Mitchell Duane Porter of Longview. Porter in January pleaded guilty to production of child pornography.

Investigators last August raided Porter's home and seized computers, cameras and other digital media. An analysis determined Porter had taken at least eight of the hundreds of images that were confiscated.

He was indicted in September.
