A former Lubbock resident has been sentenced for possessing child pornography.

Miles Robert Flinn was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings Friday to 10 years in federal prison and a 10-year term of supervised release.

The sentence comes following the 26-year-old Flinn’s November 2012 guilty plea to one count of possession of child pornography.

Flinn, who currently resides in Bradenton, Florida, has been ordered to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on April 26th, 2013.

Flinn reportedly used a file-sharing program on his computer in his residence to download child pornography images and videos, and was found to be in possession of the child pornography on his computer hard drive in July 2011.

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

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Lubbock Police Department, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy.
