A Terre Haute man was sentenced Thursday in federal court to eight years and one month in prison for transporting child pornography.

Charles Robert Gorby, 35, also must serve a lifetime period of supervised release after his prison term.

During the course of a police investigation, e-mails from Gorby that contained visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct were found on a Florida man’s computer.

Police searched Gorby’s home in October 2007, and found that child pornography, including images of prepubescent minors, was exchanged through several e-mails between Gorby and other Internet users.

Gorby pleaded guilty in a plea agreement filed in U.S. District Court, Terre Haute, in July.
