MARSHFIELD, Mo. – U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips has sentenced a 27-year-old Fordland man to 15 years in federal prison without parole after his conviction for downloading child pornography on his cell phone.

Thomas E. Wilson, who was on parole after being convicted of child molestation, also had his parole revoked and his federal sentence is to be served consecutively to the state sentence, followed by federally supervised release for the rest of his life, according to Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Missouri’s Western District.

Wilson pleaded guilty on June 10, 2013. He was arrested after an Ozark, Mo., police officer noticed him sitting in his car in the parking lot of a closed business on Nov. 15, 2012. When the officer examined Wilson’s cell phone, he discovered images of child pornography. More than 150 images of child pornography were identified in a forensic examination of the phone.

This case, which was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James J. Kelleher, was investigated by the Ozark Police Department.
