A jury found 58-year-old Robert Evans, of Waukesha, Wis., guilty on 14 counts of possession of materials containing child pornography.

Authorities were alerted to the case after a North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigations special agent discovered two computers in the state that were sharing child pornography in a peer-to-peer network.

A federal agent eventually traced the computers to Evans’ apartment in south Fargo. Investigators found more than 22,000 images and videos depicting mostly young girls engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Sentencing is set for Jan. 15 in Fargo.
