A Kenai man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for burglary and possession of child pornography.

Jesse Lee Carlson, 35, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography, a class C felony which dates back to March 10, 2013, according to Courtview. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison with six years suspended, fined $200 in court and jail surcharges and was ordered to pay restitution, according to judgement documents.

Carlson knowingly possessed or accessed on a computer sexual material involving a minor, according to his indictment.

He also pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree burglary of a dwelling, a class B felony which he committed on Feb. 27, 2013. In that case, he was sentenced to eight years in prison with five years suspended, and was fined $200 in court and jail surcharges, according to judgement documents.

Carlson was placed on probation for seven years following his served time for both cases. All other charges in both cases, which included one count of first-degree theft, three more counts of possessing child pornography, and two counts of distributing child pornography, were dismissed. Carlson was sentenced in both cases on Oct. 30, according to judgement documents.
