MEMPHIS, TN (KFVS) -

A Dyersburg man will spend 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to distributing child pornography.

According to The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Western District of Tennessee, Jonathan Lee, 21, used several outlets to exchange thousands of pornographic images of young girls.

Investigators said he also used the platforms to meet teenagers and try to convince them to send him pictures of themselves engaged in sexual activity.

Anyone who believes they may have information about this case or related activities is asked to contact the Memphis Child Exploitation Task Force at 901-747-4300.
