— A former soldier was sentenced Monday to 10 years in federal prison for downloading child pornography, authorities said.

Steven Wray, 26, of Fayetteville, pleaded guilty in October to receipt of child pornography.

Investigators in Pennsylvania determined that Wray had downloaded some explicit photos of children, and an analysis of his laptop found several hundred such images, authorities said.

Wray was in the Army at the time the offenses occurred in 2009 and 2010, authorities said.
