Springfield man gets a 14 year sentence for child pornography

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD (WREX) -

A 24 year old Springfield man has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for receiving child pornography.

Yesterday the U.S. Attorney's Office in central Illinois said that Kievan R. Walters II was also sentenced to 25 years of supervised release after serving his prison time. In July Walters pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography and was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough.

This case was part of a nationwide Department of Justice initiative to locate and prosecute people who are using the Internet to exploit children.
