EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KSDK) - A 50-year-old Belleville, Ill. man has been sentenced for receipt and possession of child pornography.

Joseph Millard will spend 121 months in prison, pay $10,000 in restitution to victims, and pay a $10,000 fine. When he is released from prison he will be on federal supervised release for 10 years and required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.

An undercover internet investigation in January 2012 caught Millard downloading child pornography files using a peer-to-peer file sharing network.

A search warrant was executed on Millard's home, and he admitted to authorities he had been downloading child pornography from the internet for 10 years. A forensic examination of his computers uncovered numerous video and image files containing child pornography.
