Arkansas man sentenced to 7 years for child porn

Posted: Updated:
FORT SMITH, Ark. -

Federal prosecutors say a 27-year-old Arkansas man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for receiving child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Conner Eldridge says Matthew Franklin of Van Buren was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Fort Smith. Eldridge says Franklin must serve seven years of supervised release once he completes his prison sentence.

Court records indicate that in March 2012, the Van Buren Police Department identified a computer that was offering to participate in sharing child pornography on the internet.

Investigators executed a search warrant for the address and learned Franklin lived there and owned several computers. Franklin provided a statement in which he said he downloaded child pornography and had it on his computer.

Franklin pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography in August 2013.
