Tucson man sentenced on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:

A 36-year old Tucson man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of one count of distribution of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography. A federal jury found Jason Wright guilty of the charges in a January trial.

During an FBI interview, Wright acknowledged that he had used a file sharing system to download and share images of child pornography. When he testified on his own behalf at the trial, Wright denied making those statements, but the jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict on both charges at the end of the trial.
