GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A Battle Creek man has been sentenced to 17 and a half years in federal prison for distributing what police called some of the most gruesome child pornography they had ever seen.

Benjamin Knight, 29, pleaded guilty in September. Police say he was caught while showing a video of child porn to a customer at a Battle Creek adult bookstore.  Police found hundreds more videos and pictures at Knight’s Eaton County home.

Police said the victims ranged in age from infancy to five-years-old.  Some of the images included bestiality.

Knight is also being added to the Sex Offender Registry.
