A Park Rapids man will spend 180 days in jail on six charges of child pornography possession.

Gregory Hubert Dirkes, 46, was sentenced last week in Becker County District Court.

Dirkes was the subject of a lengthy online search of IP addresses dealing in child pornography.

Authorities seized hundreds of images from his home computer in 2010.

He will be on supervised probation for five years.
