U.S. District Judge Robert Miller Jr. also ordered Jack E. Smith Jr. to remain on supervised release for the rest of his life after he finishes serving his 151-month sentence. Smith also will be required to register as a sex offender.
Authorities said they found more than 6,000 images and videos of child pornography on Smith’s computer last year. He also has a history of child molesting convictions dating back to 1992.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Smith is facing a charge in Marshall County of failing to register as a sex offender.
Jack Smith of Plymouth pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography and admitted he made some of the videos.
Smith will also have to register as a sex offender for life.
