Beaumont man found guilty of possessing child pornography sentenced to 2 years in prison

The Beaumont man was indicted on 10 counts of possession of child pornography in 2018.

BEAUMONT, Texas — A Beaumont man was found guilty Wednesday afternoon of possessing child pornography images.

Brian Davison was indicted on 10 counts of possessing child pornography in November of 2018. 

Davison was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison for illegal possession of child pornography and 10 years probation for the other nine counts of possession.

Davison previously faced up to 10 years in prison per charge, according to Judge John Stevens.

A search warrant was executed by the Texas Office of Attorney General’s Child Exploitation unit in June of 2018.

The warrant was the result of an undercover investigation into the sharing and trading of child porn using BitTorrent peer-to-peer file-sharing network.

Child pornography images, which included children between the ages of 7 and 9-years-old, were found on a Dell desktop computer seized during the investigation, according to investigators.

This is a developing story. We will update with more if and when we receive more confirmed information.
