Man gets prison time for child porn

Posted: Updated:

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Wesley A. Massengill of Gulfport has been sentenced to seven years and four months in prison for downloading images of child pornography on his home computer.

U.S. District Judge Walter J. Gex III sentenced the 43-year-old Massengill on Tuesday. The judge also fined Massengill $3,000 and ordered probation for 13 years after his release from prison.

The Sun Herald reports the judge also ordered him to register as a convicted sex offender after he's out of prison and prohibited him from using any computer with Internet service.

A federal grand jury had indicted Massengill on one count of possession of child pornography and two counts of distribution of child pornography.

Massengill accepted a plea agreement to the possession in June.
