An Alexandria man was sentenced Thursday to 12 years and seven months in prison on charges of distribution and possession of child pornography. 

Prosecutors say Jeffrey Klenk, 25, contacted a man he believed to be the father of an underage girl on a social networking site last October. That man turned out to be an undercover officer.

For a month, prosecutors say Klenk used his home computer to send the undercover officer 45 unique images of child pornography, including several pictures of child erotica and clothed and unclothed children. 

On Oct. 18, 2012, police recovered about 13 videos and over 325 images of child pornography from Klenk's computers. He was arrested and charged. 

Following his release, Klenk will be placed on 25 years of supervised release. He must also register as a sex offender for 25 years.
