A Cary man accused of distributing child pornography online learned his fate Wednesday.Almost a year after authorities arrested 42-year-old Jeffrey Phelps, a federal judge sentenced him to 12 and half years in prison.

Phelps also received a lifetime of supervised release when he finishes his sentence.

In October 2009, he was charged with at least 13 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to arrest warrants, Phelps duplicated computer video files of boys between the ages of 8 and 14 performing sex acts on each other.

After warrants were issued, authorities found Phelps at a local hotel with a passport, packed suitcase and cash.
