Posted: Updated:

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield man will spend more than 19 years in federal prison for spreading child pornography.

Our cameras were there as the FBI searched the home of Wade Robert Ellis, 37, on Dunraven Road in April of 2010.

Investigators say they confiscated at least 18 computer hard drives and recovered more than 475 images of child porn.

Federal agents said Ellis was making the images available for download using computer sharing software. Ellis admitted to the crime and told officers he also engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a female relative who was under age.
