      A 30-year-old Gering man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for possession and distribution of child pornography.

      Thomas Schildt pleaded guilty after making a deal with federal prosecutors who dropped one count against him.

      Schildt was also sentenced to serve 10 years of supervised release after he leaves prison and must register as a sex offender.

      Schildt was arrested on state charges last year, but they were dismissed as state prosecutors gave way to the federal case. Thousands of images of child porn were found on Schildt's computer.
