      75-year-old man sentenced for child porn

      LEBANON, Mo. (AP) -- A 75-year-old southwest Missouri man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for possessing child pornography.

      KYTV-TV reports Rene Harvey pleaded guilty to the crime last week just before his trial was scheduled to begin.

      Police arrested Harvey in September 2012. Detectives say they found more than a hundred images of child pornography on Harvey's personal computer.

      Harvey has been jailed since his arrest because police believed he was a flight risk. Investigators say they found an airline ticket from Kansas City to the Philippines in his home.
