UPSTATE MAN SENTENCED IN CHILD PORN CASE

A man from upstate New York is headed to prison for a long, long time on child porn charges. 38 year old Bruce Williams of Rensselaer, was sentenced on Monday, to 240 months in federal prison for distributing and receiving child pornography, after previously pleading guilty. As part of that guilty plea, Williams admitted that he knowingly received and distributed child pornography over the internet using peer-to-peer file sharing software. A search warrant executed at Williams’s house revealed that he possessed, on electronic devices, 122 video files and 400 image files that depicted child pornography. Williams… when he is finally freed from prison, will have to then serve a life term of supervised release, and pay $5,000 in restitution to child pornography victims. Williams will also be required to register as a sex offender.
