VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A Virginia Beach man who had thousands of images of child pornography on a computer was sentenced this week to eight years in prison.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said 43-year-old Stuart Aaron Burgess was found distributing child pornography on peer-to-peer file-sharing software.

Authorities seized his computer, which had more than 11,000 images and videos of minors engaging in sexually explicit content. A “significant percentage” of these images showed infants and toddlers being abused, according to prosecutors.

Burgess was arrested by Virginia Beach police in October 2017.
