75-year-old Missouri man sentenced for child porn

LEBANON, Mo. (AP) — A 75-year-old southwest Missouri man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for possessing child pornography.

KYTV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1hJqvG9 ) Rene Harvey pleaded guilty to the crime last week just before his trial was scheduled to begin.

Police arrested Harvey in September 2012. Detectives say they found more than a hundred images of child pornography on Harvey’s personal computer.

Harvey has been jailed since his arrest because police believed he was a flight risk. Investigators say they found an airline ticket from Kansas City to the Philippines in his home.
