Tucson man gets 8 years for child pornography

Man had images, videos on computers

A Tucson man who pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography was sentenced Monday to more than eight years in prison and was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and $5,000 in restitution, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.

Michael Lee Dixon, 44, pleaded guilty to the charge on Dec. 9, 2010, said Bill Solomon, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Federal agents found 100 still images and more than 30 video files of child pornography during a forensic evaluation of two computer towers, a hard drive and several digital storage media that were removed from Dixon's home on March 11, 2009. Accounts to child pornography websites also were found, Solomon said.

Dixon will face lifetime supervised release following his sentence, Solomon said.
