DAYTON, Ohio (WRGT/WKEF) - A Eaton man was sentenced to nine years in prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.

Matthew Perry, 22, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Walter H. Rice on Tuesday.

Perry was caught by FBI agents in 2016, who conducted an undercover operation with a file-sharing program that identifies individuals sharing child pornography. Agents found a shared folder containing 4,700 files titled “Toddlers, babies, little girl pics.” The files included thousands of pictures of children, some younger than 12 years of age.

He was also recently charged with attempted rape of a minor in Preble County. Perry has pleaded guilty in both cases, and is still awaiting sentencing on his charge of attempted rape.
