CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A Scott City man has been sentenced to more than eight years on Monday for the possession of child porn.

Leible was sentenced by District Judge Stephen Limbaugh in Cape Girardeau.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says that Richard Leible was searched by police in October 2008 and seized a computer along with other items.

Officers say that Leible admitted that the computer was his and he downloaded child porn, and pictures of minors engaging in sexual conduct using the Limewire file sharing program.

Forensic results showed that the computer contained more than 600 images and videos.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the St. Louis County Sheriff's Department helped to investigate the case.
