A 43-year-old Chili man will spend the next 15 years in prison after he was convicted of first-degree sex abuse.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Marisa Miller tells News10NBC Michael Covello distributed child porn to an undercover FBI agent in May and June 2012. When a search warrant was executed at his home, investigators say they recovered digital media items that contained sexually explicit conduct by children under 12.

Covello will also serve 15 years post-release supervision.
