JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- William Douglas Smith, III, 29, is sentenced to six years and 10 months in prison for receiving child pornography over the internet.

After his prison sentence, Smith will be on supervised release for 10 years and  must register as a sex  offender.        

Smith pleaded guilty to the charges against him in June.

The investigation into Smith began last year when the FBI identified people that accessed or traded images showing child pornography over the internet. Agents determined the computer hosting the images was linked to Smith's Jacksonville home.

Smith was taken into custody last December. FBI agents said they found more than 250 videos of child pornography on Smith's computer. During an interview with agents, Smith admitted to collecting the child pornography and said he enjoyed "the naughtiness of it."
