PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Burgaw man will spend more than a decade in prison after pleading guilty to a child porn charge.

An undercover SBI investigation early last year led agents to arrest Paul Joseph Schmura Jr. after they found nearly 15,000 images of child pornography on computer, external hard drives and other storage devices in his home.

A federal judge in Wilmington sentenced Schmura, 49, to 10 years one month behind bars followed by a lifetime of supervised release. Schmura pleaded guilty in February to one count of receipt of child pornography.
