Man Sentenced For Possessing Child Porn

A man who had images on his computer of prepubescent children and toddlers in depictions of rape and sexual abuse was sentenced Tuesday in Federal Court in Greenville.

Luke Michael Churchill of Wilmington was sentenced to nearly eight years in prison for possessing over 1,000 images of child pornography.

Federal prosecutors say this should serve as a warning to anyone who seeks out this kind of material that their conduct will not be excused even if they didn't take the picture or take part in the abuse.
