A Charlotte man was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison Monday for possessing and sharing child pornography.

David Lee Young II, 24, pleaded guilty in March to three counts of transportation and one count of possession of child pornography.

Young admitted to sharing child pornography at least three times with an undercover agent over the internet in October 2014, court records show.

During a subsequent search of Young’s home, agents seized a desktop computer and a laptop that contained 29 videos of child pornography, according to court records. Some videos depicted prepubescent children engaging in sadistic and masochistic conduct, records show.

Prosecutors said the pornography included at least 13 victims.
