SLATER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The U.S. Attorney's Office said an Upstate man will spend time in federal prison after thousands of images of child pornography were found on his computer.

Investigators said 52-year-old Timothy Greer had more than 35,000 child porn photos on his personal computer, many of which featured prepubescent children and some described as "sadistic in nature."

Investigators said there is no evidence Greer was involved in the manufacturing of the images, but had obtained them on the internet.

Greer was sentenced to 36 months in prison for possession of child pornography and will be on supervised release for the rest of his life.

One of the conditions of his supervised release is computer monitoring. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
