— A Clayton man was sentenced Wednesday to more than 5 years in federal prison on child porn charges.

Steven Schriefels, 37, pleaded guilty in December to one count of receipt of child pornography.

His 66-month imprisonment will be followed by 30 years of probation, and he must register as a sex offender. He was also ordered to pay a $4,000 fine.

Prosecutors said that Schriefels had 600 images and 23 videos of child pornography on his home computer.

He first came to the attention of the U.S. Secret Service in April 2009 for allegedly making threats against President Barack Obama. Prosecutors said a search of his computer found no evidence of the threats, but turned up the child porn.

    Seriously panterap?! If they wanted to "silence him" by planting evidence, how about planting evidence of the crime he was accused of originally?! Sometimes a pervert is just a pervert.

    Typical Obama hater. So funny.

    I wonder if his sentence would have been lighter had he not allegedly made threats. There is something truly sick and vile about a person that would watch sex acts with children.
