LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- A 39-year-old man already sentenced in California and Nebraska for sexual abuse of teenage girls has been given federal time for child pornography.

Prosecutors say Todd Tackwell, formerly of Lincoln, on Tuesday was sentenced to 13 years in prison for receiving and distributing child pornography. Federal investigators first contacted Tackwell in August 2008 when he lived in Hastings.

He was indicted in 2010 after investigators found pornographic videos on his computer.

In November he was given 35 to 45 years in a Nebraska prison for child sexual assault. He'd had a sexual relationship with a girl that started when she was 14.

In California Tackwell was convicted on April 2012 of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl. He's been serving his California sentence of 25 years to life.
