BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- A 56 year old Cleveland man will spend the next 12 years behind bars after being sentenced for the possession and distribution of child pornography.

In June, the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit of the Bradley County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant for the Peerless Road home of Jeff S. Henson. Computer hardware found in the residence was examined revealing several hundred sexually explicit images of children on the computer's hard drive.

Henson has been in custody at the Bradley County jail since his arrest for sexual exploitation of a minor and aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor. He plead guilty and was sentenced to eight years on each count by Circuit Court Judge Amy Reedy with the two sentences to run concurrent under Reedy's order.

Earlier this summer the Cleveland Police Department charged Henson with aggravated sexual battery. At the same hearing he pled Nolo Contendere to attempted aggravated sexual battery and received an additional four years in prison.
