Norfolk, Va. – A Virginia Beach man was sentenced to 120 months in prison, followed by lifetime supervised release for distributing child pornography.

Dwight McEachin, 20, pleaded guilty on March 3.

According to court documents, McEachin was arrested in December 2014 after admitting to investigators that he used KIK messenger to trade images containing child pornography.

Investigators found out about McEachin during an investigation of a Florida man who was producing child pornography. An undercover investigator exchanged messages with McEachin via KIK messenger, some of which included images of child pornography being sent by McEachin.
