FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man accused of possessing more than 225,000 pictures and nearly 600 videos of child pornography has been sentenced to 13 years in federal prison.

The Forum newspaper reports that 30-year-old John Ehlen also was ordered to pay $6,000 in restitution to victims. He will be on supervised release for 10 years following his prison term.

Ehlen pleaded guilty late last year to receiving and possessing child pornography. Authorities say some of the images depicted children as young as 1 year old.
