GULFPORT, Mississippi — A Gulfport man has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison for possession of child pornography.

Prosecutors say 49-year-old Timothy Winfred Miller paid $19 a month for a subscription to a child pornography website that allowed him access to more than 600 images of children engaged in sexually-explicit activity.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1PTONYQ ) that U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden on Monday sentenced Miller to 97 months in prison followed by 10 years of post-release supervision.

Miller also must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The government has filed for a criminal forfeiture in the case to seize Miller's laptop computer, an Apple iPod, iPad and a Samsung hard drive used in the crimes.

Miller pleaded guilty to one count of possession.
