A Southeast Texas man has been sentenced to more than six years in prison in a child pornography case involving about 11,000 computer images.

A federal judge in Beaumont on Tuesday sentenced 37-year-old Shawn Suri. The Beaumont man in May pleaded guilty to possession of material involving the sexual exploitation of minors.

Officers last September searched Suri's home and seized a laptop computer. Investigators say the device also had about 1,000 child porn videos.
