NM man sentenced to prison on porn charge

PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a former Eastern New Mexico University student to eight years in prison for possession of child pornography.

The district attorney's office says 41-year-old Christopher Kelley was convicted of 8 counts of child pornography. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Kelley will be on four years of probation after his release from prison and will be required to register as a sex offender.

The district attorney's office says the Roosevelt County Sheriff's Office began an investigation in November 2009 to locate a computer that was downloading child pornography using a wireless Internet router at the Eastern New Mexico University campus.
