A man who pleaded guilty to charges of possessing and distributing child pornography is going to jail.

In 2011, RCMP began their investigation as a result of a report that originated with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

The report identified a social networking website with explicit photos of a teenaged girl. The investigation identified the man, who was 20 at the time, and charges were subsequently laid.

The man, now 22, was sentenced in Grand Bank provincial court on Wednesday to 360 days.
