A registered sex offender from Hamilton County, Kan., has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on a federal child pornography charge, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Wade H. Dewey , 48, Syracuse, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that on Aug. 2, 2013, in Syracuse he was found in possession of images and videos depicting child pornography. He obtained the child pornography via the Internet.

Dewey previously was convicted in 1999 in Pueblo, Colo., on a charge of criminal attempt to commit sexual assault on a child.

Grissom commended the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Homeland Security Investigations, the Wichita Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
