BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – A Monroe County man was sentenced to 108 months in prison for possession of child porn.

Kentucky State Police arrested James Holland, Jr., of Gamaliel, in August 2018 following an undercover investigation and search of his home. Investigators observed a computer in Holland’s bedroom that was running a peer-to-peer file-sharing program and uploading files to the internet. A preliminary investigation of a hard drive in the home revealed hundreds of files containing child exploitation material.

“Federal prison time awaits those whose desire to possess these horrible images which hurts our kids,” said U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman.

Holland pleaded guilty on the morning of the first day of trial on Sept. 5, 2018, without the benefit of a plea agreement.

Holland will have a lifetime of supervision after imprisonment, and was ordered to pay $32,000 in restitution to six victims for possession of child pornography.
