LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) – A Big Clifty man was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment after being indicted on one count of child pornography in July, 2018.

According to the plea agreement, William Taylor had pleaded guilty in 2004 to enticement of a minor in Georgia, where he was sentenced to 168 months in prison and five years supervised release. After release, Taylor moved to Big Clifty where during an unannounced visit he was found to have a female and an 11-year-old child living with him – a violation of his supervised release.

During a follow-up meeting, consent was given to search Taylor’s cell phone. An examination revealed child pornography and sexually explicit images of children in cartoon format that Taylor had gotten from the internet.

Taylor will have a life term of supervised release after imprisonment.
