BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Federal prosecutors say a Morgan County man has been sentenced to more than six years in prison on child pornography charges.

Authorities say 42-year-old Walter Scott Simpson of Danville was sentenced Wednesday to 6 ½ years in prison and 15 years of supervised release.

Prosecutors say Simpson used peer-to-peer file sharing software to acquire child pornography between January 2011 and May 2012. Prosecutors say Simpson admitted to having more than 25,400 images of child pornography on his computer.

Authorities say undercover agents received child pornography using a peer to peer network in January 2012 and tracked the computer to Simpson's house.
