TUPPER LAKE — A federal judge on Monday sentenced a Tupper Lake man to six years of prison time for possessing child pornography.

James L. Tabolt Jr., 40, also will be subject to 15 years of post-release federal probation and will be required to register with the state as a sex offender, according to the sentence handed down in U.S. District Court in Albany.
