A Topeka man has been sentenced to 10 years and two months in federal prison for distributing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister says Ryan Andrew Rivera, 22, of Topeka, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of distributing child pornography.

In his plea, Rivera admitted he contacted 10 minor girls on Facebook to urge them to send him sexually explicit images of themselves.

McAllister says in one instance, a girl, 15, sent Rivera sexually explicit photos and he forwarded the photos to another girl, 15.
