A Greer man was sentenced to federal prison time for his role in the production and distribution of child pornography.

Investigators said after locating pornography featuring a very young child in Australia, they worked backward to trace the origin of the images.

Sean Patrick Oswell, 52, was determined to be the source of the material and has not only distributed them, but had also created them. Investigators said Oswell sexually exploited and photographed the prepubescent child.

The case was investigated by the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office and Homeland Security.

Oswell was sentenced to 262 months in prison and a life term of supervised release. He will also be required to register as a sex offender and undergo sex offender counseling.
