ASHLAND, Neb. -- A man from Ashland was sentenced to prison after he was convicted for child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Susan Lehr said 21-year-old Conner Chapman, of Ashland, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha on Friday. He was convicted for receiving and distributing child pornography. Chapman will serve 120 months in prison with a five-year term of supervised release after and has to register as a sex offender. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, Nebraska’s Internet Crimes Against Children investigation team got a Cypertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in November 2021. Five video files were uploaded by a KIK user that had child porn. The IP address used for uploading of the files was connected to Chapman’s home.

Officials said a search warrant was used at Chapman’s home and his phone was taken in September 2022. Chapman was interviewed and admitted to viewing child porn online. Chapman’s phone was searched and 216 image files and 7 video files of child porn were found.

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol.
