Richard Trepanier, 40, was ordered to serve 14 years in prison.
The case against Terpanier began with an undercover investigation by Australian law enforcement, according to federal authorities.
Trepanier, using the name "Wingman66", contacted an Australian Federal Police undercover officer patrolling the internet in February 2008 and offered him images of child pornography. The Australian authorities tracked the user name to Trepanier and sent the information to the FBI's office in Cincinnati.
During the FBI's investigation, they identified approximately 56 images of child pornography and evidence that Trepanier was trading child pornography.
Trepanier was also sentenced to serve 10 years under court supervision after completing his prison sentence. While under court supervision, he must register as a sex offender anywhere he lives, works or goes to school.
