HOLTON, Kan. (AP) -- A northeast Kansas man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual exploitation of a child.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1au2Mkg ) that 46-year-old James Michael Baxter of Holton pleaded guilty Aug. 23 to one count of electronic solicitation and two counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

He was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison. After serving his sentence, Baxter will serve 60 months of parole and be required to register as a sex offender for 25 years.

Baxter was arrested April 27 after Jackson County sheriff's deputies and officers with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security served a search warrant in connection with an investigation into the distribution of child pornography.
