PALM BAY, Fla. -

A Palm Bay man was sentenced to 8 years and one month in federal prison for distributing child pornography.

The U.S. Department of Justice said Keith William Davey Jr., 28, pleaded guilty in February, according to Local 6 news partner Florida Today.

In November 2013, an undercover agent in Portland, Maine contacted Davey online, according to a release.

Davey thought the agent was interested in child pornography and discussed trading images. Twice in November, Davey used Yahoo Messenger to send the agent images of prepubescent girls being sexually exploited by men.

Police searched Davey's home and he admitted to sending the pornography to the agent. Police found child pornography on Davey's computer and an SD card.
