Tucson man sentenced in child pornography case

Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A convicted felon has been sentenced to 18 years in federal prison for accessing child pornography in Tucson.

Federal prosecutors say 34-year-old Billy Dewayne Mills was sentenced Tuesday.

He pleaded guilty to knowingly accessing child pornography in March.

After serving his prison term, authorities say Mills will be on lifetime supervised release with stringent sex offender conditions including registration as a sex offender.

Mills was indicted by a federal grand jury for accessing child pornography after an investigation by Tucson agents of the Department of Homeland Security.

Investigators say Mills downloaded and shared child pornography through a sharing program.

Authorities say Mills was convicted in Missouri of possession of child pornography in 2008 and first-degree child molestation in 2000.
