COLLINSVILLE, Il (KMOV.com) – A Metro East man has been sentenced after an investigation showed he had downloaded a number of photos and videos containing child pornography.

William A. Martin, 29, of Collinsville, Illinois, was sentenced in federal district court on September 17 to 120 months in prison- the maximum statutory sentence for the offense.

 Martin was also ordered to serve a 30-year term of supervised release, fined $1,000, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment. Martin previously pled guilty to the one-count indictment on March 27, 2012.

Court documents show that after an investigation, a search warrant showed Martin was able to download videos and images of child pornography from a computer located at his residence.

Agents seized two computers from Martin’s bedroom, which, when forensically examined, were found to contain images and videos of child pornography.

Martin admitted receiving child pornography through a file sharing program and admitted possessing both computers, knowing that each contained child pornography.
