EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) - Federal authorities say a 45-year-old El Dorado man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for receiving images of child pornography.

Authorities said Wednesday that Shannon Ross Griffin's prison term will be followed by supervised release for life.

Court records say investigators executed a search warrant for child pornography at Griffin's home last year.

Authorities confiscated two computers and other digital storage devices and a forensic examination revealed multiple images and videos of child pornography.

After being advised of his rights, Griffin admitted to downloading child pornography from the Internet and saving the images on his computers and digital storage devices.

Investigators said they found nearly 650 images and 69 videos depicting sexual assaults of children and other child pornography.

Griffin pleaded guilty to the charge March 10.
