Federal prosecutors say a Philadelphia man has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison for transportation of child pornography.
Thirty-six-year-old Kenneth Houck was also ordered to register as a sex offender at sentencing Thursday.
According to court documents, an undercover agent in Delaware downloaded child pornography files that Houck made available to members of a computer network devoted to trading such images.
A search warrant was executed on Houck's home and more than 6,000 child pornography images were found on his computer.
