Man sentenced for downloading Child Porn

LONDON, Ky. (WTVQ) – U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove sentenced a man to 13 years in Federal Prison for receiving Child Pornography.

Gordon Bowers pleaded guilty back in January of this year, after investigators executed a search warrant for Bowers’ office and said they found over 40,000 images of child pornography on his state-issued computer and other electronic equipment.   

Judge Van Tatenhove also ordered Bowers to bay $35,000, in restitution for the costs associated with psychological counseling services for multiple victims.

According to Federal law, Bowers must serve at least 85% of his sentence, and will be under supervision of the U.S. Probation office for 15 years.
