Columbus, NE man sentenced to 8-years for child porn distribution

Posted:

A Columbus, Nebraska man was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for distributing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg announced Tuesday that 41-year-old Edward Johnson of Columbus was sentenced in the U.S. District Court in Omaha on charges of distribution and possession of child pornography.

Johnson was sentenced to 96 months behind bars with no parole.

Following his release from federal prison, Johnson will serve fifteen years of supervised release and be required to register as a sex offender.

An undercover investigation was launched after a public website linked an IP address in Columbus to images of child porn.

Johnson later admitted to sending images of child porn to the undercover officer.

Subsequent investigation found that Johnson's computer had nearly 200 videos of child pornography.
