Robert Carey Evans, 58, of Waukesha, Wis., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Erickson to 10 years in prison on 14 counts of possession of materials containing child pornography, according to a news release by federal prosecutors.

Evans is also ordered to pay a $1,400 special assessment to the Crime Victims Fund and register as a sex offender for life.

Evans was found guilty of the charges by a 12-person jury in October after an investigation of Evans began when officers found two computers in North Dakota were sharing child pornography.

After a search warrant was issued for Evans’ Fargo apartment, investigators found more than 13 hard drives and 43 DVDs containing child pornography. Forensic examination revealed more than 22,000 images and nearly 1,400 videos.

Evans, a resident of Wisconsin, was living and doing consultant work in Fargo at the time.
