FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for possessing and receiving child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 46-year-old Howard Fjeld of Grand Forks pleaded guilty to the charges in April. He was sentenced on Tuesday to prison and a lifetime of supervised release.

Authorities found nearly 1,200 image files and nine videos of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct on Fjeld's computer.
