BEMIDJI -- A 33-year-old Cass Lake man was sentenced to just over 12 years in prison this week for the distribution of child pornography.

According to a press release from U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald, Jared Ross Boswell pleaded guilty on Aug. 15, 2019, and was then sentenced to 145 months on Monday, Feb. 10, by Judge Donovan W. Frank in Bemidji.

The release from MacDonald said that Boswell "used the Internet to send obscene materials and distribute sexually explicit images" from April 2018 through September 2018. In one case, the press release said, Boswell sent an image of a child being sexually abused to a victim who was 10 years old.
