A Miles City man has been sentenced to six and a half years in federal prison for child porn charges.

William John Pulse was sentenced to 78 months in prison on a child porn possession charge, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release. Judge Susan Watters issued the sentence in U.S. District Court on Thursday.

A second charge of distributing child porn was scheduled to be dropped at the sentencing hearing Thursday, according to a plea deal filed in November.

Law enforcement traced 653 child porn images back to a Dropbox account that had uploaded the images using an IP address assigned to Pulse.
