An Amarillo man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for possessing child pornography.

Twenty-eight year-old James Bradley Taylor received the 63-month sentence following his May 2012 guilty plea to one count of possession of child pornography.

Taylor used a peer-to-peer file-file sharing software program to download, and attempt to download images of child pornography in March 2011.

The case was investigated as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
