GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -

A Kingsport man was sentenced in Greeneville's federal court for having child pornography.

Michael Noble, Jr. was sentenced Wednesday to serve 10 years in prison.

The Kingsport Police Department seized a computer and external hard drives from Noble's apartment. Police say they found over 2,300 images and videos containing child pornography.

This case was part of a national investigation called "Project Safe Childhood". It was created to combat the growing epidemic of child exploitation and abuse.
