Hope man gets 40-year sentence on child porn charges

Posted By on Fri, Jan 22, 2016 at 10:53 AM

Acting U.S. Attorney Kenneth Elser announced today that Johnny Evans, 46, of Hope, was sentenced Thursday ain federal court in Texarkana to 40 years in federal prison and lifetime supervised released on two counts of production of child pornography.

A news release cited court records as saying a grandmother in 2013 reported sexual contact between a man later identified as Evans and her 10-year-old granddaughter. The girl told authorities he'd assaulted her while spending the night at his house. Nude images of the minor were found on his cell phone in a subsequent search. He pleaded guilty in April.
