A Hannibal man was sentenced Monday in Marion County Court on child pornography charges.

According to Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton, 25 year old Lee Gatlin was sentenced to 15 years in prison after previously pleading guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography.

Gatlin was arrested in September of 2015 after a woman found a cell phone in Hannibal. In trying to determine the owner of the phone, the woman child pornography on the phone and turned it over to Hannibal Police.
