Southwestern Illinois man sentenced to 12 years in child-porn case

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- A judge has ordered a southwestern Illinois man to spend more than 12 years in federal prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.
  
Sixty-three-year-old Thomas Lowery of East Alton also was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis to life on supervised release after his prison term.
  
Lowery pleaded guilty in June to three felony counts related to his receipt and possession of pornographic material between August 2008 and April 2009.
  
Federal prosecutors say agents who raided Lowery's home found roughly 4,200 images and 150 video files containing child pornography on his bedroom computer, as well as 230 images of bestiality.
