Western Iowa man sentenced to prison for having child porn

(AP) -

A Harlan man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for possessing child pornography.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/2dxZhkB ) that 55-year-old Michael Charles Garreans pleaded guilty to the charge on June 9. He was sentenced Thursday.

In addition to his five-year sentence, he will be on supervised release for seven years following his prison term.

There is no parole in the federal system.

The charge stemmed from an investigation into a site monitored by law enforcement, which identified Garreans before executing a search warrant of his home in Harlan.

U.S. Attorney Kevin VanderSchel says officers found a computer in Garreans' home that contained `hundreds of images of child pornography."
