A Bauxite man was sentenced to 310 years in prison for multiple felony child pornography charges, the attorney general's office said in a statement Friday.

A Saline County jury found Michael Rea, 44, guilty Thursday on 20 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing material of sexual conduct involving a child, and four counts in computer exploitation of a child, according to the release.

Rea received 40 years for each exploitation count and 30 years for each child pornography count, which would have totaled 760 years in prison, the release states.

However, Saline County Circuit Court Judge Robert Herzfeld ordered that Rea serve the sentences for each of exploitation counts and five of the 20 counts of child-pornography consecutively, totaling 310 years in prison, the release states. Rea's remaining sentences will run concurrently, meaning that his total 760-year sentence will be condensed into his 310-year sentence.

"This jury sent a very clear message that criminals involved in the despicable act of exploiting our children deserve the maximum sentence under the law," Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said.
