JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A 24-year-old High Springs man was sentenced Monday to six years in federal prison for receiving child pornography over the Internet.

Robert Brammer was also sentenced to a term of 10 years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term and required by the court to register as a sex offender and forfeit his computer media.

According to court documents, a detective working with the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began an undercover operation to identify people using a particular file sharing program on the Internet to obtain and share child pornography. The detective determined that other law enforcement officers had identified a computer using a particular Internet protocol address in Florida that was seen offering images of child pornography for distribution.

The investigation revealed during the time frame the IP address was seen offering images of child pornography for distribution, the subscriber for the Internet service account was someone located at Brammer's home.

On Sept. 3, 2010, a federal search warrant was executed at the home, and during the search, officers seized, among other things, a laptop computer and a desktop tower computer. During an interview, Brammer said that he began searching for and downloading child pornography about three and a half years ago, and that he used file sharing programs to search for and download child pornography from the Internet.

Brammer's computer media had at least 28 images and 15 videos of child pornography, investigators said.
