A former Carbon County man is facing a lengthy prison sentence for receiving and distributing child pornography.

Thirty-two-year-old Stephen Puza III, formerly of Lehighton, was sentenced Tuesday to 188 months in prison.

Puza pleaded guilty in October 2013 to using a computer to download and share numerous images of child porn between July 2011 and September 2011.

A federal judge also ordered Puza to be placed on supervised release for 10 years after serving his prison sentence.
