LEBANON, Mo -

A seven year prison sentence was given to a 75-year-old Lebanon man for possessing child pornography.

Rene Harvey pleaded guilty to the crime before his trial was scheduled to begin last week.  Police arrested Harvey in September 2012 after a one year investigation.  At the time detectives told us they found more than a hundred images of child pornography on Harvey's personal computer.

He has been in jail since his arrest because police believed he was a flight risk.  They found an airline ticket from Kansas City to the Philippines in his home.
