Lee Co. man gets 10 years for child porn

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 56-year-old Lee County man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison today for possessing child pornography.

The U.S. Department of Justice says Judge Glen H. Davidson sentenced Joel Fitzgerald to a decade of supervised probation after 10 years of incarceration.

A Justice Department statement says Fitzgerald was arrested after officials learned that he had paid to access Web sites containing child porn.

Agents seized and searched his computer, finding more than seven-thousand images of child porn, including images of rape of prepubescent minors and sadomasochistic torture of minors. Fitzgerald was previously convicted of molestation of a minor in Texas.
