A man from Fayetteville was sentenced in federal prison for receiving and possession of child pornography.

Joshua Box, 35, was sentenced to 15 years, followed by 30 years of supervised release and ordered to pay $13,000 in restitution for one count each of receiving and possession of the pornography.

According to court records, Arkansas Community Correction was conducting a home visit, as he is a supervised registered sex offender, in May of 2018.

Box admitted to ACC officers that he had downloaded child pornography from the dark web and saved it to his hard drive. Box’s electronic devices were seized by Homeland Security Investigators and a forensic review yielded images and videos of child pornography.

Box was indicted in May 2018 on federal charges and plead guilty in August 2018.
