A Washington County man will spend five years and 10 months in prison for possessing child pornography, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Kevin Zajack, 47, of Charleroi pleaded guilty in March to the possession charge. Federal investigators discovered that Zajack in March 2011 logged into a members-only Italian website that offered child pornography, prosecutors said.

A May 2011 search turned up hundreds of photos and videos on Zajack's computer, prosecutors said. U.S. District Judge Donetta Ambrose also sentenced Zajack to 15 years of probation.
