Garden City Man Sentenced For Possession of 16,000 Child Porn Images

KSCB News - November 30, 2015 12:59 pm

A Garden City man was sentenced Monday to 78 months in federal prison for possessing more than 16,000 images of child pornography, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

James E. McGary, 43, Garden City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that in October 2012 an investigator with the Ford County Sheriff�??s Office working online identified a computer sharing pornography on a file sharing network. When investigators served a search warrant at McGary�??s home, they found a laptop computer containing approximately 16,000 images of child pornography.

Grissom commended the Garden City Sheriff�??s Office, Homeland Security Investigations and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Kenney for their work on the case.
