By News Sentinel staff
LOUDON - A man will serve four years on probation for sending child pornography over the Internet, authorities said today.

Andrew Krikau, 39, pleaded guilty Jan. 20 to three counts of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor, according to the Harriman Police Department. A judge ordered him to serve four years on probation and to register as a sex offender.

A Loudon County grand jury indicted Krikau in 2009 after an online sting that began with a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, police said. Police didn't give further details.
