A Boise sex offender has been sentenced to 75 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to several counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

The Ada County Prosecutor's Office says Britian Lee Barr received the seven-decade sentence on Tuesday.

In April 2017, a Boise Police detective was monitoring online networks used to distribute, share and download child porn when he discovered Barr, who was on sex offender probation, had downloaded hundreds of files.

Detectives searched his cell phone and computers and found 90 videos and hundreds of images of young children being sexually abused.

Barr was sentenced under Idaho's enhanced penalties because of his sex offender status when he committed the crimes.
