Haddox gets federal prison time for child porn

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Snyder man must serve more than 17 years in prison after admitting to having child pornography.  Wesley Ray Haddox, 31, was sentenced Friday by Judge Sam Cummings in Lubbock. Haddox must also serve a lifetime of supervised release.  Below is the text of an official statement from federal prosecutors. 

LUBBOCK, Texas — Wesley Ray Haddox, 31, of Snyder, Texas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 210 months (17.5 years) in prison, following his guilty plea in April 2010 to one count of receipt of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney James T. Jacks, of the Northern District of Texas.  In addition, Judge Cummings ordered that Haddox, who has been in custody since his arrest in February 2010 on related charges, serve a lifetime of supervised release.  Snyder is located in Scurry County, Texas, approximately 90 miles southeast of Lubbock.

 According to documents filed in the case, Haddox admitted using a "peer-to-peer" file-sharing program on his computer to download videos of child pornography.  In the course of searching for videos depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, Haddox downloaded and saved approximately 58 such videos.  

 This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please clickhere.                                                                            

The case was investigated by the FBI and the Snyder Police Department, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Lubbock.
