TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say a Tucson man is headed to prison for 15 years for possessing child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 28-year-old Christopher Flynt was convicted following his guilty plea March 25.

An investigation into distribution of child pornography over the Internet revealed Flynt received several images of child pornography from another individual.

Flynt's computer was seized and hundreds of images of children were discovered.

Prosecutors say at the same time Flynt produced, possessed and traded child pornography, he was working as a baby sitter for three minor boys and operated a business photographing children's sporting events.

One of the images on Flynt's computer was of the youngest boy Flynt baby-sat.
