KANSAS CITY (AP) — A former St. Joseph Boy Scout leader has been sentenced to six years in prison without parole for distributing child pornography over the internet.

Federal prosecutors say Michael Goeller was sentenced Thursday. He was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release after incarceration.

Goeller pleaded guilty in October 2018. Goeller previously worked for the Marillac Center of Kansas City and the Family Guidance Center in St. Joseph.

The investigation began in February 2017, when a law enforcement officer in Arkansas downloaded a video file containing child pornography on a network that was linked to Goeller's computer.

Goeller later admitted to officers that he used his laptop to access pornographic websites to find pictures of nude children, ranging from age 10 to 15.
