Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) On Monday a Twin Falls man was sentenced to 25 years in prison on the charge of sexual battery of a minor and possession of child pornography.

44 year old Robert Brackett was arrested back in 2011 for having an improper relationship with a minor.

In February of this year Brackett was found guilty by a jury of 5 counts of sexual battery of a minor and 8 counts of possession of sexually explicit material.

On Monday, Judge Michael Crabtree sentenced Bracket to a consecutive 25 years sentence in the Idaho State Penitentiary. With 8 of those years fixed and 17 indeterminate.

All of the counts will run consecutive in that 25 year sentence.

Brackett was also credited for time served, which makes up over two years of his 25 year sentence.
