A Miami County man was sentenced Monday to nine years in federal prison on child pornography charges.

32-year-old William Bresee of Fontana, KS, pleaded guilty to three counts of distributing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography.  At sentencing, the prosecutor told the court Bresee admitted that federal agents downloaded child pornography from his computer using an online file sharing program.

Bresee was a staff member at Lakemary Center in Paola, working an overnight shift when investigators tracked child pornography to an IP address at the center.  Breesee no longer works there.
