FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Frankfort man was sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison on Wednesday for possessing child pornography and failing to pay his workers fairly, according to court records.

The Department of Justice says 49-year-old Fei Guo Tang had five videos on his phone of child pornography. Prosecutors say Tang also failed to pay more than $60,000 in required overtime and minimum wages to five of his employees. They say Tang will be required to pay that amount in restitution.
