A judge has sentenced Donald Rowley of Port St. Lucie to 14 years in prison for possessing child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Florida.

Once the 62-year-old serves his sentence, he will face a lifetime of supervised release.

The government said Rowley used a peer-2-peer internet network to search for, receive and share child pornography and investigators found computers with more than 450 videos of child porn.

A news release from the government said Rowley had previously pleaded guilty to committing a sex offense involving two young girls in 1988, in Maryland.
