A 50-year-old Omaha man has been sentenced to five-and-a-half years in federal prison for possession of child pornography.
Hanson will have to serve five years of supervised release after serving his prison sentence.
Hanson also has been ordered to pay a $5,000 special assessment for victims of trafficking and exploitation offenses.
FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force members searched Hanson’s home in August of last year. Federal prosecutors say agents had observed Hanson in possession of child pornography on more than ten previous occasions.
Hanson, who was present during the search, admitted to downloading child pornography. Ten videos of child pornography were found on his home computer.
