DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -A Davenport man was sentenced Oct. 26, to 260 months; or 21 years and eight months; in federal prison for receiving child pornography, according to a media release.

George Winston Taylor, 65, was ordered to serve five years of supervised release after the prison term and pay $48,000 in restitution, the media release said.
