Steven Commander, swept up in a March 2009 child pornography sting, pleaded guilty to his charges on Tuesday, court records state.
The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual exploitation of children and was sentenced to three years’ incarceration, followed by 20 years of supervised probation, court officials said.
Commander also was told he can’t own or use a computer.
Commander was charged in connection with “Operation Shattered Innocence,” which tracked illegal pornography sent through a computer file-sharing network.

Commander’s indictment states that he had three video files on his computer depicting minors.
A search warrant was served March 10, 2009, at a mobile home on Plateau Drive, where authorities allegedly found files on a computer in a bedroom Commander occupied.
An Army specialist was also charged in the sting and faced one count of sexual exploitation of children but that count was tossed out in June 2009 by a grand jury.
