BIRMINGHAM – A federal judge this week sentenced a Tuscaloosa County man to 14 years in prison for receiving and possessing child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, FBI Special Agent in Charge Roger C. Stanton and Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Acting Secretary Stan Stabler.
U.S. District Judge L. Scott Coogler sentenced ADAM SHANE SWINDLE, 34, on one count each of receiving and possessing child pornography in 2014.

The defendant used peer-to-peer file-sharing computer software to receive and possess videos depicting children under the age of 12 being raped and sodomized. The simple possession of these images is a crime of violence.

β€œThis defendant is NOT a minimal offender and, therefore, deserves a harsh sentence of imprisonment,” the government said in a court filing.

The FBI and ALEA State Bureau of Investigation investigated the case, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Jacquelyn Hutzell prosecuted.
