CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

A man allegedly charged with possessing dozens of pictures and videos of child pornography was given a 10 year sentence on Monday.

The Leaf Chronicle reported that David Kennedy was charged with 15 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and pleaded guilty to all counts before he was scheduled to begin a jury trial on Monday.

Kennedy plead guilty to possessing 14 videos of young children engaged in lewd, lascivious or sexual conduct.

He received four years on each count and all counts will be served concurrently or at the same time.

Kennedy also plead guilty to sexual exploitation of a minor for having more than 50 but less than 100 photos of children engaged in sexual conduct.

He agreed to a six year sentence on the charge to be served consecutively with the four year sentence, giving him a total of 10 years.

The newspaper reported that Kennedy downloaded the images to his laptop computer between January and October of 2011.

He must serve at least 30% of his sentence before he is eligible for parole and must register as a sex offender and undergo sex offender treatment.

Kennedy was allowed to surrender himself to the jail at 6 p.m. on August 15 to allow time for his pregnant wife to give birth.
