A Chippewa County man will spend 50 years in federal prison for child exploitation.

Duane Forrest was arrested last February after a witness told police Forrest sexually abused teenage boys.

Police searched his Sault Ste. Marie home and found sexual pictures and video of multiple children.

Forrest was also separately charged in state court and has pleaded guilty to a state criminal sexual conduct offense.

A sentencing hearing on the state charge is scheduled for later this month.
