He was living in Otsego and on probation for an earlier child pornography conviction when he was arrested last September.

According to the US Attorney's office, investigators executed an FBI warrant at his home and found nearly 35,000 images and 555 videos of suspected child pornography.

They included "depictions of the sexual abuse of prepubescent minors, including depictions of children being physically restrained, whipped, and threatened with fire."

Besides his prison sentence, the judge also ordered Odegaard to pay $65,000 in restitution, $17,000 to the Amy, Vicky, and Andy Child Pornography fund, and $5,000 to the Domestic Trafficking Victims’ fund.
