GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a plea involving child pornography has garnered a Mississippi man a maximum sentence for producing images of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden on Tuesday sentenced Edward Lee Thomas, 48, to serve 50 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release.

Thomas was also ordered to pay assessments totaling $25,000.
