RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Sparks father has been sentenced to federal prison after pleading guilty to sharing child pornography on the Internet while using a neighbor's wireless account.

Twenty-six-year-old James Scoville was arrested following an undercover investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. He was accused of the receiving and sharing child pornography last year between Oct. 19 and Nov. 15.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Scoville was sentenced Wednesday to a prison term of five years and three months.

U.S. District Judge Howard McKibben also ordered Scoville to be supervised for 10 years after his prison term expires.
