NIXA, Mo. – A Nixa man was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years and 10 months in prison without parole for receiving and distributing child pornography over the Internet.

According to Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney, Charles Williams, 28, of Nixa, plead guilty to the accusation on Aug. 7, 2013 and admitted that he used peer-to-peer file sharing programs on two laptop computers to download and distribute dozens of videos and photos of child porn over the Internet from April 9 to Sept. 27, 2011.

Williams was arrested on Sept. 27, 2011.

Later discovered on Williams’ computer were 52 incomplete or partially downloaded videos of child pornography, 29 saved videos of child pornography, eight videos of child pornography in the recycle bin and 13 images of child pornography.
