Kansas man sentenced in Fargo for child porn

FARGO — A truck driver from Kansas who was caught at the U.S.-Canada border in North Dakota with child pornography has been sentenced to 6 ½ years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 27-year-old Kenneth Mahoney Jr. of Topeka, Kan., pleaded guilty last October to possession and transportation of child porn.

Purdon says that when Mahoney was stopped at the border, authorities confiscated a laptop computer, CDs and DVDs that contained nearly 6,500 images and 250 videos of child porn.
