    A father and son have been sentenced on child pornography charges in Virginia.

    Greg Clabaugh, 61, of Floyd County, received a three-year sentence Tuesday after pleading guilty to two counts of reproduction of child pornography. Another seven years were suspended.

    His son, Mark Clabaugh, 31, pleaded guilty to the same charges and received a two-year sentence. Another eight years in prison were suspended.

    Both will also serve three years of probation and must register as sex offenders upon release from prison.

    Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced the sentences in a news release.

    The charges stemmed from an investigation by Christiansburg police. Detectives discovered Greg Clabaugh sharing child pornography images over a peer-to-peer network.

    While interviewing Greg Clabaugh, authorities discovered that his son, Mark Clabaugh, had also downloaded child pornography, and had burned CDs of the material for his father, according to Herring's office.

    More than 600 child pornography images and videos were found on a computer, CDs and thumb drives in the defendants' house.

    Greg Clabaugh was a long-time announcer for the football and basketball teams at Floyd County High School, according to WSLS.com.

    SWVaToday.com reported that he was also a former manager of Floyd's Farm Credit office, but took an early retirement after police discovered that his computer was linked to a peer-to-peer child porn operation. 

    Mark Clabaugh, an auto technican, is a veteran of Iraq, according to SWVaToday.com.
