Joseph Richter, 36, Davenport, has been sentenced to 100 months in prison for receiving and distributing child pornography.

According to an Iowa Department of Justice press release, U.S. Chief District Judge James Gritzner ordered a term of supervised release of five years after his imprisonment as well as a $100 assessment to the Crime Victims Fund.

Richter's case began during an online investigation, and law-enforcement officials identified an Internet protocol address associated with the file sharing of child pornography that matched his residence, the release said.

According to the release, a search warrant provided police officials with Richter's laptop and other media that contained child pornography.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Secret Service, the Davenport police, and the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
