A Milton man has been ordered to serve 2 1/2 years in federal prison for possessing child pornography. Twenty-nine-year-old Carl Wilson was one of nine men arrested last year in a child porn ring that federal prosecutors say was led by Paul Thielemann of Georgetown. Investigators had copies of online chats between Wilson and Thielemann in which Wilson confirmed receipt of a 40-second video of a child being molested.

Police did not recover the video from Wilson, but authorities say he acknowledged seeing it.

All nine men charged in the case have admitted guilt in plea deals with prosecutors. Wilson is the sixth to be sentenced.
