GREENSBORO, N.C. — A man who pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography was sentenced Thursday, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Dantre Davis, 28, of Greensboro, pleaded guilty on June 5 to one count of receipt of child pornography occurring from February 2016 to April 2016.

Davis was sentenced by United States District Judge Loretta C. Biggs to 72 months imprisonment followed by 15 years supervised release. He was also ordered to forfeit a laptop computer and two external storage drives containing child pornography.

At the time, Davis was a licensed physician assistant in North Carolina.
