MONROE, La. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a man from Downsville in north Louisiana has been sentenced to more than 28 years in prison for producing child pornography.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced on Monday that Michael S. Golden, 53, was sentenced to 342 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Robert G. James on one count of production of child pornography.
Prosecutors say agents discovered in April 2014 that Golden took sexually explicit photographs of a minor in order to create child pornography. He then used an email account to transmit the child pornography.
He also was sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release and ordered to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
