Man sentenced to 121 months in prison for child pornography charge

SAVANNAH, Tenn. -- A Hardin County man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison on Tuesday after pleading guilty to distributing child pornography.

According to the indictment, Kenneth Wayne Johnson, 48, used a file-sharing program to seek out and download child pornography to his computer from November 2011 to July 2012.

Court documents say Johnson was downloading the images at his place of employment, copying the images to a thumb drive then transferring them to his home computer.

In addition to the prison sentence, U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson ordered Johnson to serve five years of supervised release, forfeit all computers and media containing alleged child pornography, and pay $2,668 in restitution to identified victims depicted in the pornographic images.

There is no parole in the federal prison system.
