Dallas man gets 10 years for 8,000 child porn images

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

A Dallas man who admitted to downloading child pornography will spend the next 10 years in federal prison.

Howard Tyson, 45, was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in March to one count of possession of child pornography.

According to documents filed in the case, he used a peer-to-peer file-sharing program to download more than 8,000 images and at least 20 videos of prepubescent and pubescent minors, including some that were sadistic.

Tyson admitted he had been using his computer and his wife's laptop to download the files for about a year.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat child sexual exploitation.
