Child porn posesser to self-report to prison

A Moses Lake man will spend four years in prison for possessing more than 2,000 images of child pornography.

Keith Marshal Ivers, 50, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Spokane after pleading guilty in March to possessing child pornography.

The case began in November 2007 when the FBI in New York traced a child pornography website to Ivers' home, which agents searched in January 2008.

Ivers, who had no previous criminal record and was downloading and uploading child porn on his computer, surrendered in July 2009 and has been on electronic home confinement.

He was ordered to report to federal prison on his own once he's been assigned, according to federal court documents. He'll be on probation for five years after his release and will be required to register as a sex offender of the rest of his life.
