GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- A Bangor man who was arrested last spring as part of an international child pornography sweep, has now been sentenced to 15-years in a Federal Prison.

54-year-old Thomas Wright admitted to taking nude pictures of a minor boy and trading them through an online child pornography ring that Federal Agents were monitoring.

They also subsequently found a lot of other “kiddie porn” on his computer.

190 suspected child pornographers in the U.S., Europe and Asia were arrested as part of “Operation Orion” last May and 18-victims rescued by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations unit.
