SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- A registered sex offender from southwestern Missouri has been sentenced to 10 years in prison without parole for receiving child pornography.
   
The U.S. Attorney's office says Austin Wayne Ploof, 35, of Springfield, pleaded guilty in December and was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Gary Fenner.
   
Ploof is a registered sex offender based on a 2004 felony conviction in Kansas for sexually exploiting a child.
   
Prosecutors say Ploof's girlfriend found child porn on his computer in June 2011. The woman took the computer and flash drive from Ploof's home to the Greene County Sheriff's Department.
   
Investigators found eight videos and eight images of child pornography on a flash drive hooked up to the computer.
