GREENEVILLE — A Baileyton man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Monday on child pornography production charges.
Stanley Weems, 67, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to charges that stem from an investigation by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Weems used the video and camera functions on cell phones to record images of minors engaged in sexually explicit poses and of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct with adults, according to a Department of Justice news release.
Investigators were alerted to the crimes by one of Weems’ victims. The allegations were also confirmed by other adults engaged in the offenses, who had been misled by Weems about the minor’s age.
Weems also faces a fine of up to $250,000 and supervised release for the remainder of his life following his incarceration.
