WICHITA, Kansas — A 48-year-old Wellington man has been sentenced to eight years and four months in federal prison for distributing child pornography.

According to a news release from U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom, Steven J. Meisel, who was sentenced Monday, was also given 10 years of supervised release once his prison sentence is completed.

Meisel was convicted of one count of distributing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography. Prosecutors say a Wichita detective downloaded child pornography files that were traced to Meisel's computer in Wellington.
