An Elkhorn man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison on child pornography charges.
Federal prosecutors say 25-year-old Trevor McLaurine formerly lived in Richland, Washington.
An investigation by the Nebraska Attorney General’s office led to McLaurine’s residence in Elkhorn in which investigators discovered more than 8,000 files of child pornography.
A federal judge also ordered McLaurine to pay $3,500 restitution to the victims. He will serve five years of supervised release after his prison term ends and will be required to register as a sex offender.
