WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A registered sex offender from Great Bend was sentenced Thursday to a little over 24 years in federal prison on child pornography charges.

A federal jury convicted Wayne Benjamin Wasson, 60, on four counts of uploading child pornography to the internet and one count of possessing child pornography.

During a trial, a prosecutor presented evidence that Yahoo and Google detected child pornography originating from Wasson’s home. The digital trail led investigators to Wasson, who admitted he had received child pornography via Skype and had operated a number of other accounts. Investigators found child pornography within the accounts and on Wasson’s devices.

Wasson registered as a sex offender in 2007 following a conviction for possession of child pornography.
