|U.S. Attorney’s Office November 02, 2010|
COLUMBIA, SC—United States Attorney Bill Nettles stated that James Danner Wilson, Jr., age 44, of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, was sentenced today in federal court in Charleston, South Carolina, for possession of child pornography, a violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2252A(a)(5)(B). Senior United States District Judge P. Michael Duffy of Charleston sentenced Wilson to 40 months’ imprisonment and lifetime supervised release.
Evidence presented at the guilty plea hearing established that Wilson downloaded child pornography from the Internet in 2007. In October 2007, a family member called the Mt. Pleasant Police Department to report that she found child pornography on Wilson’s computer. The police obtained a search warrant to search Wilson’s computer, and a subsequent forensic examination found more than 100 images of child pornography on the computer.
The case was investigated by officers of the Mt. Pleasant Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Assistant United States Attorney Rhett DeHart of the Charleston office prosecuted the case.
