Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, WA - A Moses Lake man has been sentenced to five years in prison for distributing child porn. 

23-year-old Benjamin James Brekke was sentenced Wednesday after having previously pleaded guilty in February of 2014 to Distribution of Child Pornography.

United States District Court Judge Thomas O. Rice sentenced Brekke to five years in federal prison, to be followed by a life term of court supervision after he is released from Federal prison. In addition, Brekke will be required to register as a sex offender.

According to court records, on October 17, 2013, Brekke distributed approximately eleven graphic child pornography images of an infant in a car seat being forced to perform oral sex of an adult male to an undercover employee working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. On October 18, 2013, Brekke was arrested and federal search warrants were obtained for Brekke’s cellular telephones. Over 1,500 images of child pornography were located on one of his cell phones.
