The probation of Robert Warren Triplett Jr., a Lowndes County man who faces child pornography charges, was revoked April 8.
He was sentenced to serve 10 years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
Triplett, 56, of 181 Golding Road, earlier pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court to charges of activities regarding materials constituting or containing child pornography.
He was arrested in October when investigators found explicit photos of minor children on a computer obtained from his home during an investigation into the disappearance of his stepdaughter, Kaila Morris, 21.
Triplett, who had past arrests for sex crimes in Mississippi and Louisiana, was on non-adjudicated probation from 2003 charges of attempted sexual battery in Jackson County.
The Jackson County Circuit Clerk''s Office Friday confirmed the probation revocation order and Triplett''s sentence.
Triplett''s trial on the child pornography charges is scheduled to start June 28 in Oxford before Chief Justice Mike Mills.
Morris, who owned a residence in Starkville and worked part-time at the Cookie Store in Leigh Mall, has been missing since Sept. 17.
She was last seen by Triplett, who said she left the home he shared with Morris'' mother, Bonnie Morris Triplett, in a dark-colored van or sport utility vehicle, with an unknown person or people.
Morris'' mother was vacationing in Florida at the time.
Anyone with information on Kaila Morris'' whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151, 911 or the Lowndes County Sheriff''s Office at 662-328-6788.

Where is Triplett being held right now? Help us keep our daughters safe.
The June 28 hearing sounds like Federal Court. What about charges from the State of Mississippi?
The evidence is proved. Triplett should plead guilty to the child porn charges and save his family from the continued shame of the public hearing.
Triplett should tell where Kaila Morris is. Mississippi should charge Triplett with murder.
Keep us informed.

Will Bonnie Williamson Morris Triplett be charged with anything? She moved the scumbag Robert Triplett to our town. She supported the lazy bum so he could collect child porn in her house.
