A Detroit-area man has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison after a jury convicted him on child pornography charges.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit says 38-year-old Dennis Delaney of Northville was sentenced Thursday on federal charges including distribution and possession of child pornography.
A jury convicted Delaney last year after a two-week trial. Prosecutors say he met a then-12-year-old girl on the Internet and later they met in person. Delaney took sexually explicit photos of the girl, which he then distributed on the Internet.
In a court filing, Delaney's attorneys said the girl told him she was 18 years old and their relationship ended when he discovered she was lying about her age.
