A Covington man has been sentenced to 66 months in prison for possession and distribution of child porn.

In July, 55-year-old Gary Lee Rimmer pleaded guilty to both counts; he was sentenced in federal court Monday morning.

Rimmer admitted that while living in Greene County, he began an online relationship with a 13-year-old girl in Florida. During the course of their online and phone relationship, Rimmer sent her sex toys and a pornographic picture.

An examination of Rimmer's computer also revealed that he had distributed child pornography to a person outside Virginia.

The case was a part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative by the Department of Justice to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
