Danville Photographer Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison in Child Pornography Case
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the sentencing of a Danville man following his guilty plea in June to possession of child pornography. Boyle Circuit Judge Darren Peckler yesterday sentenced 46-year-old Terry Alan Hadley, a photographer in Danville, to seven years in prison. The case against Hadley was the result of an investigation by General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit.
"I appreciate the hard work of my Cybercrimes investigators who work tirelessly to make the Internet a safer place for Kentucky kids," General Conway said. "I also applaud the office of Commonwealth's Attorney Richie Bottoms for its successful prosecution of this case."
Hadley pled guilty on June 16, 2011 to four counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. The Attorney General's investigation of Hadley began in December 2009 following a tip from a local computer store that was servicing a computer brought in by Hadley.
Since its creation in June 2008, General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit, a member of the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force, has launched more than 230 investigations and seized nearly 300,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet.
