A Fort Campbell soldier is facing one year in prison and will have to register as a sex offender after a Christian County Circuit Court Jury found him guilt Tuesday of 12 counts of possession of child pornography.
27 year old Michael Myers of Oak Grove will be sentenced December 5th. The jury recommended a sentence of one year for each of the 12 counts to run concurrently, or at the same time. Myers will also be required to register as a sex offender for a period of 20 years.
The case against Myers is the result of an undercover investigation launched by Attorney General Jack Conway’s Cybercrimes Unit in September of 2009.
Commonwealth's Attorney Lynn Pryor says she is very pleased the jury recognized Myers intentionally downloaded photographs and videos of child sexual abuse.
Conway says he is grateful for the work the Cybercrimes investigators do every day to make the Internet a safer place for Kentucky kids and he is proud of Pryor's work in getting a conviction.
Since its creation in June of 2008, General Conway’s Cybercrimes Unit has launched nearly 300 child pornography investigations and seized approximately 350-thousand child pornographic images and videos from the Internet. The unit is also a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
