NORTHEAST ARKANSAS MAN FACING 20 YEARS IN PRISON ON CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES
A Clay County man entered a guilty plea yesterday on child pornography related charges.
Second Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington tells KWOC News that 43 year old Shane Thompson has pled guilty to four counts of distributing, possessing, and viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child.
In April, the Arkansas State Police recovered multiple digital devices containing explicit child pornography during a search of Thompson’s home.
On two of the counts, Thompson was sentenced to ten years in the Arkansas Department of Correction. Ellington says the sentences will run consecutively for a total of 20 years.
On the other two counts, he received a 120 month suspended sentence.
