A 38-year-old North Kentville man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for several child pornography offences.

Jason Pitts, who was sentenced in Kentville provincial court on Wednesday afternoon, pleaded guilty in October.

He was charged in January 2012 after the Internet Child Exploitation Unit raided his home and seized computer equipment.

In addition to the prison sentence, Judge Alan Tufts ordered Pitts's name be placed on the national child sex-offender registry. He must also give a DNA sample and he faces a lifetime ban on using the internet.
