A Nottingham man has been sentenced to prison on child pornography charges.
Allen D. Isner, 52, was sentenced to four years in prison followed by 15 years of supervised release earlier this month. Isner pled guilty to possession of child pornography.
The judge in the case ordered that, upon his release from prison, Isner must register as a sex offender in the place where he resides and where he is an employee under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).
According to the plea agreement, on July 24 – 25, 2014, undercover detectives downloaded child pornography videos that were made publicly available over a peer-to-peer file sharing network by a user later determined to be connecting to the internet from Isner’s residence in the 4200 block of Darnall Road.
Upon executing a search warrant at the home, investigators searched two of Isner’s computers and located hundreds of videos and images of children being made to engage in sexually explicit conduct.
Isner admitted to investigators that he searched for and obtained pornography depicting preteen children on the internet. He also admitted to trying to delete the material and using special software in an attempt to conceal his conduct.
