MINOT, North Dakota — A Minot man who pleaded guilty to four counts of possession of child pornography has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

KXMC-TV in Minot reports (http://bit.ly/1olsRuu) 29-year-old Shawn Narvais was sentenced Tuesday in Northwest District Court. Narvais admitted to having about 4,500 images and movies of child pornography. Narvais also confessed to viewing child pornography since he was a teenager.

District Judge Todd Cresap told Narvais he should consider himself lucky he wasn't tried in federal court. Cresap said his sentence would've been more severe.

Cresap sentenced Narvais to five years of supervised probation after he completes his prison term.
