Longview Child Pornographer Gets Prison

It's prison time for a convicted child pornographer in Gregg County.

46 year old Regan Welborn of Longview was sentenced to seven years in prison.

He was arrested last may on charges of promotion of child pornography after hundreds of obscene images of children were found on his home computer.

Welborn had argued that he only collected the images in an effort to help another individual who suffered molestation as a child, but the judge in the case didn't buy that.

Welborn will also have to register as a sex offender once out of jail.
