Local Man Faces Prison Sentence for Child Pornography

A Kanawha County man is going to prison on child pornography charges. 42-year old Michael Lee McCormick was sentenced earlier this week in Federal Court, to two years behind bars. McCormick pleaded guilty back in November, admitting that he downloaded images and sent them to other people. Police say there were more than 600 pornographic images. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.
