Willcox man gets 5 years for possession of child pornography

Posted: Updated:

WILLCOX – A man was sentenced in Tucson to five years behind bars for possession of child pornography after an investigation that began in 2006.

During that year Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents discovered 53-year-old Deewayne Bowdoin had subscribed to websites that sold child pornography.

A search warrant was served at his Willcox home where agents found a computer and computer equipment including numerous discs. During an extensive investigation of those files detectives discovered more than 15,600 photos and 62 movies of children engaged in sexually-explicit conduct.

Detectives also say the photos were of children under the age of 12 engaged in sadistic and masochistic conduct.

U.S. Attorney Dennis K. Burke says, “This is just a sentence for Bowdoin’s role in the sexual exploitation of children, and he will spend the rest of his life on our radar.”

Chief Judge Roll sentenced Bowdoin to 60 months in prison followed by supervised release for the remainder of his life. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
