GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Jefferson City man was sentenced to 13 years in prison after he was convicted of receiving, possessing, and distributing child pornography, according to a Dept. of Justice spokesperson.

Prosecutors said Francisco Martin downloaded and distributed images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct from computers in his home and elsewhere.

William C. Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee said, "This case represents the continuing commitment of the U.S. Attorney's Office to eradicate the trade of images of children being sexually exploited."

After he is released, Martin will be under supervised release for the rest of his life.
