Lillington man gets 20 years on child porn charges

— A Lillington man convicted on federal child pornography charges was sentenced Friday to nearly 22 years in prison.

William Joseph Black, 40, was found guilty in June of nine counts of receipt of child pornography and two counts of possession of child pornography.

Senior U.S. District Judge Louise Wood Flanagan also ruled that after his release, Black will be subjected to supervision for the rest of his life and must register as a sex offender.

U.S. Attorney George Holding said that Black's sentence was stiffer because of his criminal history. Black has convictions for third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and disseminating obscene literature to a minor under age 13, according to state Department of Correction records.

Holding said that the investigation began when the Harnett County Sheriff's Office received complaints that Black had assaulted three girls. In his home, investigators found child pornography on two computers and 53 discs, prosecutors said.

    csplant - "I just will never understand what people get out of looking at little kids naked."

    Sometimes those little kids aren't just naked, sometimes they're doing things with adults or other little kids, and that should be very disturbing to anyone even the slightest bit normal.

    God bless.

    Cut "it" off, then make him serve his time.

    That's what I call justice for those that prey on children.

    God bless.

    Apparently this guy is a real creep, a deviant and needs to be locked up to keep him out of society. I just will never understand what people get out of looking at little kids naked. People's minds are so diseased by evil, it's pathetic.

    This sentence is more like it!! As long as he serves every day!!! None of this parole in a couple of years garbage and even that isn't half enough!

    He is not your casual voyeur; his serious time seems justified!

    I agree that after he's registered as an offender he should be supervised for the rest of his life. However, I disagree with the 22 years and feel that time frame should be 20-30 minutes or until the needle stops dripping.

    It is a shame that these guys get less jail time than thieves... Judge lacy Thornburg would approve.

    Too bad for him that he is not a woman. He would have gotten off with a small fine and community service.
