A Gate City, Virginia man indicted in June on hundreds of counts of possessing child porn will spend 10 years in prison following a ruling in Scott County Circuit Court.

Charles Wilson Sanlin, 25, was arrested following an investigation that dated back to January, according to court records obtained by News 5.

Information from Commonwealth's Attorney Marcus McClung said sheriff's office investigators received a damaged computer thumb drive from one of Sanlin's family members and were able to have the device repaired.

Thousands of videos and child porn images were found on the drive and the case was then presented to the grand jury this summer. Sanlin was charged with 137 counts of possession of child pornography.

The judge suspended 15 years of Sanlin's total 25-year sentence, said McClung who also described the evidence as horrific.
