A 21-year-old man from Louisburg was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment after he pled guilty to charges related to child pornography.

The U.S. Department of Justice said Joseph Patrick Murphy was named in an indictment on May 21, charging him with three counts of distribution of child pornography and ten counts of the receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Murphy pled guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography on Aug. 15, the DOJ said.

According to the investigation, Murphy used the internet to distribute numerous images of child pornography to undercover law enforcement agents.

A federal judge sentenced Murphy to 216 months imprisonment, followed by lifetime of supervised release. Upon his release from prison, Murphy will be required to register as a sex offender, according to the DOJ.
