A Fremont man was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison after previously being found guilty of three counts related to child pornography, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Robert Lehman, 57, was arrested in January after investigators determined he downloaded more than 50 images of young boys being sexually abused.

Lehman was previously sentenced to eight years in state prison for corruption of a minor in 1987 and nine years in state prison for corruption of a minor and sexual imposition in 2009, according to court documents.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S Attorney Alissa Sterling following an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement -- Homeland Security Investigations.
