MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Alan Williams, of Hillsboro, Virginia, was sentenced today to 327 months incarceration for producing child pornography, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.

“The production of child pornography is a heinous act and victims our most vulnerable—our children. The sentence is warranted and demonstrates our commitment to aggressively prosecuting these crimes,” said Powell.

Williams, age 55, pled guilty to one count of “Production of Child Pornography by Person Having Custody or Control” on September 2019. Williams admitted to permitting a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce child pornography to be shared in February 2019 in Jefferson County.

Williams was also ordered to pay $30,000 in restitution to the victim in this case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kimberley D. Crockett prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Department of Homeland Security Investigations investigated. 

Chief U.S. District Judge Gina M. Groh presided.
