A man who'd been convicted in a Nebraska court of attempting to receive child pornography has been sentenced in federal court for producing child porn.
Federal prosecutors say 41-year-old Allen Hudson, formerly of Plattsmouth, was given 25 years and three months for producing pornography. Hudson will be on supervised release for life after he leaves prison.
Prosecutors say Hudson pleaded guilty in state court in February 2011. But Nebraska State Patrol technical experts soon discovered more pornographic images on Hudson's computer, including images of Hudson with an 11-year-old boy. Investigators eventually learned Hudson frequently had young boys stay overnight as guests at his home.
The patrol then referred the new evidence to federal prosecutors.
