A Topeka man has been sentenced to 24 years in federal prison for producing child pornography.

WIBW-TV reports that 40-year-old Jonathan Kearn was convicted in May on counts of producing, distributing and possessing child pornography.

Homeland Security Investigators received information in April 2013 from authorities in Australia that an investigator had received emails that contained child pornography from Kearn.

The images included a child under the age of six.
