Nebraska man sentenced to 15 years in child pornography case

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Prosecutors say a 44-year-old Nebraska man was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years in prison for transportation of child pornography.

The U.S. attorney's office says in a news release that Gregory Hanssen, of Omaha, Nebraska, was also ordered to serve 20 years of supervised release after he finishes his prison sentence.

The case stems from a tip received by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children indicating a Google photos user had uploaded apparent child pornography.

Federal agents seized his cell phone and tablet device and found more than 700 images of child pornography.
