A Warrenton, Va. man was sentenced to 12 years in prison Wednesday for distribution of child pornography.

Prosecutors say James Wendell Brown, 51, contacted a man he believed to be the father of an underage girl on a social networking site in March 2012. The man turned out to be an undercover officer. For days, Brown talked to the man online and even sent him three graphic images of men engaged in sexual acts with children. Brown also told the undercover officer he had sexually abused young children in the past. 

Brown was arrested in late March 2012 and pleaded guilty in January.

After his prison term, Brown will face 20 years of supervised release.
