EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP)- A Granite City man has been ordered to spend 16 years in federal prison for possessing and distributing child pornography.

Before being sentenced Monday in East St. Louis, 23-year-old Mikhail Reinhardt had pleaded guilty in February to the two felony counts.

Authorities say an August 2009 search of the southwestern Illinois home Reinhardt was sharing with his parents uncovered one computer with more than 1,000 photographs and videos containing child pornography. Another computer had 11 similar photographs and videos.

Investigators say Reinhardt admitted downloading the pornography.
