BOISE -- A man from Star will spend 10 years in federal prison for possessing child pornography.

Sixty-eight-year-old Michael Angus was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Boise.

After he completes his 10-year sentence, he will be on supervised release for the rest of his life.

Ada County Sheriff's deputies began investigating Angus after a 10-year-old girl reported that he had engaged in sexual contact with her while her family was visiting Angus' home last year.

Angus pleaded guilty to federal charges in August.

As part of the agreement, state charges are being dismissed.
