A Wichita man was sentenced Monday to five years in federal prison for distributing child pornography. 42-year-old Joshua Haskins of Wichita pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography and one count of using the internet to target a child for sexual exploitation. 

In his plea, Haskins admitted he posted child pornography on his Twitter account. Twitter reported the images to CyberTipline, a web site where electronic service providers and the public can report child pornography. 

Haskins also used his account on a photo-sharing website based in Russia to upload a picture of the Instagram account of a 12-year-old girl. He included the girl’s name and her electronic email address, urging other users to “talk her into nudes” and “send me pics if u do.”
