A Minnesota man was sentenced to 16 years in prison Monday for downloading and sharing child pornography out of his home state and eastern Madera County, according to the US Department of Justice.

Terrence Goldberg, 35, pleaded guilty in July 2018 to two counts of receipt and distribution of child pornography, according to U.S. District Court records.

His prison time will be followed by 15 years of supervised release, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

In 2016, Goldberg was detected sharing child pornography files out of a children’s camp in Madera County, according to court documents. FBI agents found Goldberg downloading child pornography outside of a church in North Fork on July 11, 2016., the Justice Department said.

Goldberg admitted to the download and distribution of said files and consented to a search of his electronic devices, prosecutors said in the statement.

He relocated to Minnesota shortly after and continued to share child pornography from October 2016 through May 2017, leading to FBI offices in Minnesota and Wisconsin joining in on the investigation. Goldberg’s home was searched on May 26, 2017, and he was arrested that same day.
