MILFORD -

A Milford man has received a five year prison sentence after downloading hundreds of child porn videos to his computer, officials say.

Dean Barber, 59, accepted a plea deal Monday to serve five years in prison followed by 10 years probation.

Barber used "disturbing" search phrases, officials say when downloading 500 child pornography videos to his computer in June 2018.

Officials say he must also register as a sex offender.
