TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A northeast Kansas man has been sentenced to five years in prison for distributing child pornography, and a federal judge is weighing whether to award three victims more than $2 million in restitution.

Thirty-two-year-old Brandon Hollister, of Horton, pleaded guilty in November to one child porn count. He admitted using file-sharing software to download images of child porn, including 33 photo files and 37 video files the FBI found on his computer.

Prosecutors urged the judge during Monday's sentencing to order Horton to pay restitution. They said the victims sustained permanent mental, emotional and psychological damage from being sexually exploited as children.

Defense attorneys countered that Hollister was only one of many users who downloaded, viewed and distributed images of the victims.
