Vernon Parish man gets six years for child porn

LAFAYETTE (AP) — A 41-yeaer-old Vernon Parish man has been sentenced to six years in federal prison for possession of child

pornography.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley said in a

news release that Francis M. Buckner, of New LLano, also was ordered by

federal district

court Judge Richard Haik to register as a sex offender once he

leaves prison.

When he pleaded guilty on July 17, Finley says Buckner admitted to possessing 36 videos and 144 images of child pornography,

which he obtained through a porn-sharing downloading program.
