A Leavenworth man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison for receiving and distributing child pornography, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Pedro Zamora, 36, was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court to 121 months, or 10 years and one month, in prison for one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography. He also was ordered to pay $6,500 in restitution.

In a plea, Zamora admitted that investigators found 127 videos and 1,900 images containing child pornography on a computer in his home. He used file sharing programs to collect and distribute the images. Zamora told investigators he began searching for child pornography on the internet when he was in middle school, according to the news release from the office of Stephen McAllister, U.S. attorney for Kansas.
