MARQUETTE, MI--   A Negaunee man who pleaded guilty to three counts of possession of child sexually abusive material has been sentenced. 

Stan Wright, 58—a former employee at WNMU-FM—was originally charged with eight counts of having child pornography. He was arrested in September for downloading the material onto his work computer. Wright left Northern Michigan University in July of 2016.

Wright was sentenced Friday morning to 150 days in jail with credit for 101 days already served. He must also serve 60 months of probation.
