Tennessee Man Sentenced to 15 Years for Distributing Child Pornography

A Tennessee man was recently sentenced to serve 15 years in prison for his role in distributing child pornography, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office. On Feb. 9, 2015, Ronald Randolph Radford was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to participating in the distribution, receipt, and possession of child pornography. Federal Investigators found a large collection of child pornography in his possession. Mr. Radford's sentence is to be followed by 10 years of supervised release. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and Johnson City Police Department worked together to investigate Mr. Radford. This case was the result of an initiative called Project Safe Child, which monitors local, state, and federal resources to find and prosecute people responsible for child exploitation via the internet. 

Although there are many laws, both state and federal, which address child pornography matters, the primary federal statute can be found at 18 USC § 2252A. Punishment for violation of this statute can range from 5 years to life imprisonment.
