MADISON, Wis. -

A man from Watertown has been sentenced to nine years in prison for receiving child pornography.

Russell Forsman, 44, will also serve 25 years of supervised release after his term of imprisonment.

Forsman pleaded guilty to the charge on Jan. 22.

While noting that Forsman had numerous positives in his life, U.S. District Judge William M. Conley balanced that against the fact that Forsman's interest in child pornography dated back to at least 2006. He also noted that Forsman took pictures of himself naked in public places and that he failed a polygraph test regarding sexual contact with minors.

The charges against Forsman were the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI and Milwaukee Police Department.
