HAMMOND, Ind. (WISH) - Two West Lafayette men have been sentenced in child pornography cases.
Blake Titus, 23, was sentenced to 240 months imprisonment and lifetime supervised release after he pleaded guilty to a felony offense of distribution of child pornography, according to a release.
According to government documents, after law enforcement officials discovered computer files with titles that indicated child pornography through a peer-to-peer file sharing program, a search warrant was executed and revealed 10 to 20 images and at least 100 videos of minors taking part in sexually explicit conduct on a hard drive belonging to Titus.
Also sentenced was Carl Agnew, 29. Agnew was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment and 20 years of supervised release after he pleaded guilty to the felony offense of possession and distribution of child porn, according to a release.
