MADISON, Wis. -

A 58-year-old Gays Mills man was sentenced Tuesday for distributing child pornography, according to a release.

Ricky Olson was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison and 20 years of supervised release, officials said. He pleaded guilty to the charge on April 6.

Olson used a false persona to create fake email addresses and fake accounts on Snapchat, investigators said. Olson used the Snapchat account to contact a 12-year-old child, requested and received sexually explicit images and videos via Snapchat and email, and then distributed the content to others via the internet.

Olson also sent the child obscene images of himself, officials said.
