MCALLEN (AP) – A South Texas man who pleaded guilty in a child pornography investigation must serve more than 17 years in prison and pay the victim $1.3 million.

Prosecutors in McAllen say a federal judge Monday afternoon sentenced 45-year-old Reynaldo Vega of Mission. Vega in April pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography via the Internet.

Investigators say Vega viewed and shared the child porn images. He must pay restitution to the one known victim of the scheme going back to August 2011 when Vega’s home was raided.
