A Houston man who had more than 17,000 child pornography images and videos has been sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison.

A federal judge in Houston on Friday sentenced 64-year-old Christopher Clark Pollett. Pollett in November pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography in a 2010 case.

Investigators say Pollett worked for Neighborhood Centers Inc. The nonprofit group deals with community development and after-school programs. Organization officials did not immediately comment Friday.

The FBI in June 2010 searched Pollett's home. Authorities say several computers, film reels, books and binders had thousands of images of children. About 17,000 digital images and 400 child porn videos were located.

Pollett must also pay $21,000 in restitution to three child victims and a $7,800 fine. Further details on the victims weren't released.
