HATTIESBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

20-year-old Grantham Armstrong Mitchell of Hattiesburg was sentenced, on Monday, to 15 years in federal prison for production of child pornography and 7 years for possession of child pornography.

The two sentences will be served at the same time and then followed by an 8 year term of supervised release.

Mitchell was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,591.

He previously pled guilty to producing a video of himself and a minor child engaging in sexually explicit conduct in Orange Beach, Alabama in 2012.

Mitchell also possessed numerous images and videos of minor children, as young as 12 years old, engaging in sex with adults.

The investigation in this case began when a complaint was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding possible child pornography being uploaded to a Dropbox account via the Internet.

An investigation was conducted by members of the FBI's Child Exploitation Task Force which is comprised of special agents of the FBI and investigators from the Mississippi Attorney General's Office and the Rankin County Sheriff's Office.
