Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - A La Crescent man has been sentenced to over 6 years in federal prison for a child pornography conviction.

40-year-old Bryan Erickson was given the 75-month sentence after he pleaded guilty to a single count of receipt of child pornography. Federal prosecutors say the conviction stems from Erickson’s involvement in an online group that trades images of children being sexually abused.

The evidence includes hundreds of messages between Erickson and another person concerning advice about molesting children.
