ALBANY - A Johnstown sex offender was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison in a child pornography possession and distribution case, U.S. Attorney's officials said.

Charles Guyer, 60, pleaded guilty in the case earlier and Senior U.S. District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy imposed the 20-year term Monday.

Guyer admitted in May to using two laptop computers equipped with peer-to-peer file-sharing software to download and distribute child pornography, prosecutors said.

Guyer has a prior state felony sexual abuse conviction related to sexual contact with someone under the age of 11 in 1996 in Montgomery County, federal prosecutors said.

He has been in custody in the federal case since his April 2018 arrest.

The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the New York State Police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Emmet J. O'Hanlon is prosecuting.
