EUGENE, Ore. - A man convicted in a child porn case will serve 15 years in prison.

A judge sentenced Catalin Dulfu, 54, on Monday to 15 years in prison. The Eugene resident was convicted two weeks ago by a jury on 30 counts of first- and second-degree encouraging child sexual abuse.

Dulfu was also fined $5,000. The money will go to a fund established for a young female victim who appeared in some of the pornographic images found in Dulfu's possession.

The investigation began in October 2011.

The jury issued its guilty verdict after more than three hours of deliberation.

The prosecution was led by the Oregon Department of Justice.
