A Livingston man was sentenced to 72 months in prison after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
David Russell Hargrove, 33, was sentenced before Senior U.S. District Judge Jack D. Shanstrom.
According to court documents, Hargrove possessed computer files containing child pornography between approximately 2010 and Dec. 2011, in Livingston.
Law enforcement analysed Hargrove's computer and located the images and videos after executing a search warrant.
Hargrove admitted using the peer-to-peer file sharing program Limewire and searching for terms such as "father/daughter". He also admitted to knowing some of the images were child pornography.
Law enforcement also found child pornography in a separate folder on Hargrove's computer's desktop.
The investigation was conducted by the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
