SAN FRANCISCO – Devon Davey Hudson, a/k/a Davey Wayne Hudson, was sentenced to 120 months in prison for possessing child pornography, announced United States Attorney David L. Anderson and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent in Charge John F. Bennett.  The sentence was handed down today by the Honorable Jon S. Tigar, U.S. District Judge.

Hudson, 56, of Alameda County pleaded guilty to the charge on February 15, 2019.  In pleading guilty, Hudson admitted he possessed images of child pornography.  According to court filings, Mr. Hudson possessed more than 100,000 images and videos of child pornography, some depicting physical acts of sexual abuse of children.
