A Mechanicsburg man will spend the next five years in federal prison after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
Gary Stinson Smith, 61, was sentenced in federal court Monday to five years in prison followed by 10 years supervised probation and a $50,000 fine, according to a news release issued by U.S. Attorney David Freed.
Freed’s office said Smith was found in possession of more than 1,000 images and 16 videos containing child pornography in 2015.
Smith pleaded guilty in November 2016, according to the news release.
He was ordered to report to the federal Bureau of Prisons Friday, the news release stated.
