EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

An Alabama man was sentenced Wednesday afternoon for distributing child pornography.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office said Mark Butler, 28, of Gardendale, AL, exposed himself online to what he believed was a 13-year-old girl.

Butler was sentenced to 10 years in prison with seven to serve.

After receiving several tips, deputies obtained a warrant Butler for electronically furnishing obscene materials to a minor.

Deputies say Butler used the name "Sir Butler " as his online chat name and exposed himself on a web cam to an undercover detective posing as a 13 year old. Butler does have ties to this region.
