Child Porn Sentence

Federal authorities say 39-year-old Todd Tackwell was sentenced in Lincoln Tuesday to 13 years in prison to be followed by a life term of supervised release in a child pornography case.

Investigators say Tackwell came to the attention of law enforcement through an investigation initiated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement into a criminal organization which was operating a commercial child pornography website. They say Tackwell was determined to be a subscriber to the website.

In August of 2008 investigators contacted Tackwell at his residence in Hastings, at which time he admitted he possessed child pornography on his computer.

An indictment was filed in the District of Nebraska in 2010, as a result of a forensic examination of Tackwell’s computer hard drive which revealed videos depicting sexually explicit conduct of children.

Upon his release, he will be required to register as a sex offender.
