FRANKLIN, OH (FOX19) -

A Franklin, Ohio man has been sentenced to 144 months in prison for possessing more than 600 images of child pornography.

Authorities say that 48-year-old Paul Fox possessed the images, depicting children under 12 in a sadistic and masochistic conduct.

The sentence was handed down on Tuesday by Senior U.S. District Judge Sandra S. Beckwith.

Fox pleaded guilty on April 24, 2013 to one count of receipt of child pornography. According to court documents, HSI received a child exploitation referral from the Queensland Police in Australia regarding images posted on a Russian image board indicating the exchange of images of child exploitation, with information pointing to Fox. 

Franklin Police and HSI obtained a search warrant for Fox's house on January 9, 2013 where they seized computer storage media and a computer. A forensic analysis of the computer by the Secret Service showed that Fox knowingly received multiple images and videos depicting violence or sadistic conduct. Authorities say Fox possessed more than 600 images. Fox was arrested January 11, 2013 and has been in custody since his arrest.

After completing his prison term, Fox will be under court supervision for the rest of his life. Under federal law, he must register as a sex offender anywhere he lives, works or goes to school.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
