An Albany man is sentenced to over 12 years in prison for child pornography.

Christopher Pratt, 58, admitted to distributing, receiving and possessing child pornography files over the internet through a peer-to-peer file sharing program.

Pratt also admitted to storing numerous child pornography images – including depictions of sexual abuse and rape of prepubescent children and toddlers – on his laptop.

Once out of prison, Pratt faces 15 years of supervised release.

The case is a part of “Project Safe Childhood,” a program which prosecutes individuals who exploit children online, and assists victims.
