An Amarillo man was sentenced to more than eight years in federal prison Monday after pleading guilty in February to a count of possession of prepubescent child pornography, according to a news release.
James Kenny Crawley, 60, of Amarillo was sentenced Monday before U.S. District Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater to 97 months, according to the release by John Parker, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas.
Crawley was ordered to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on July 18.
According to documents filed in the case, Crawley used a laptop computer at his residence to search the Internet for images and videos of child pornography. In the course of searching for this material, Crawley located, downloaded and viewed approximately 5,000 images and over 100 videos constituting child pornography, and some of those images involved prepubescent minors engaging in the sexually explicit conduct.
The Ochiltree County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Rangers and Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case and Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua Frausto prosecuted, according to the news release.
