ST. CLOUD -- A St. Joseph man has been sentenced to three years and three months in prison after pleading guilty to having child pornography. Thirty-nine-year-old Dale Benjamin pleaded guilty to five felony counts of child pornography in June.

An investigation in May 2018 revealed around 90 videos of sexual assault of children on Benjamin's laptop.

According to the criminal complaint, the investigation into Benjamin was based on him allowing child pornography to be downloaded from his account on a file-sharing network.

The criminal complaint details videos that were found on his laptop containing graphic images of sexual acts performed on children as young as 6-12 months old and including both boys and girls.
