Ronald Vandel Thoreson

A 62-year-old Oregon man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for child pornography.

Ronald Vandel Thoreson pleaded guilty last July to a federal indictment charging him with distribution of child pornography in 2005.

Thoreson was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents following reports by the German National Police that he used an Internet access account to download child pornography using the file sharing program Limewire.

The case was prosecuted under Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2006 to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
