Big Spring man receives 12-year sentence in child porn case

September 23, 2011

A 76-year-old Big Spring man indicted in November 2009 for possession of child pornography was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison this week in an Abilene federal court.

Harvey James Pelland — who was convicted in March of two counts of possessing child pornography and five counts of receiving a visual depiction of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct — was sentenced to serve 151 months in prison to be followed by 10 years of probation.

The sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis.
