Bradley Garton, 31, of Ellis was sentenced in Gage County District Court last Friday. He will serve 36 months probation for two counts, attempted possession of child pornography with intent to deliver and attempted possession of child pornography.
He will be required to register as a sex offender.
According to Gage County Court documents, the incident dates to March 19, when Google detected two images that fit the definition of child pornography uploaded to an email.
Google reported this information to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, giving them the email address and IP address of the login.
NCMEC searched the address, which came back to Charter Communications in Beatrice. Charter was given a subpoena for the subscriber information, which came back to Garton.
