TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute man will spend time in prison after police say he admitted to having several child pornography videos.

A judge sentenced 22-year-old Jacob Sparks to three years in prison.

That will be followed by three years of in-home detention, and then four years of probation.

The Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested Sparks last March.

It claims he downloaded videos of children under the age of 12.

Sparks must also register as a sex offender.
