U.S. District Attorney Conner Eldridge announced Wednesday Terry Bellah, 55, was sentenced to 100 months imprisonment without the possibility for parole followed by 15 years probation for transporting over 100 videos of child pornography.
According to court documents, from January to April 2012, an investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce identified Bellah as a possible suspect. In April 2012, investigators found him traveling in Alabama. During questioning, he confessed to having child pornography on the laptop computer that he was traveling with.
Bellah was charged in federal court with transportation, receipt, and possession of child pornography on April 10, 2012.
On August 13, 2012, Bellah pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography. At sentencing, Federal District Court Judge Holmes was presented evidence by the Government that Bellah had over 100 different videos of child pornography located on his computer when he was arrested.
