Forrest City man sentenced in production of child porn case

FORREST CITY, AR (KAIT) - A Forrest City man was sentenced to 265 months in prison after being charged with producing and possessing child porn.

According to United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, Chris Thyer, 42-year-old Freddie Wallace was sentenced Friday. Following the 265 months imprisonment, Wallace will have 10 years supervised release. Wallace must also undergo intensive sex offender therapy and he will have to register as a sex offender.

Wallace was found guilty by a jury of one count of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography on September 8, 2011.

The Wynne Police Department obtained a search warrant of Wallace's home after a confidential informant showed police child porn videos that Wallace had allegedly made. During the search warrant, police found additional video tapes and DVDs. The seized media included similar images of child porn as initially found.

The United States Secret Service provided the Wynne Police Department with investigative support. The case was then taken to the U.S. Attorney's Office for prosecution.

The matter was federally prosecuted through Project Safe Childhood.
