A Jackson County man was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison Thursday after he entered a guilty plea in U.S. District Court in New Albany to charges of possessing and producing sexually explicit material involving minors.
According to Tim Horty, with the U.S. Attorney's office in Indianapolis, on July 19 of last year, 30-year-old Lance B. Grant, who is also known as Brandon Grant, was found by federal and local law enforcement to possess a number of videos and images depicting minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
The indictment identified 14 specific videos and still images possessed by Grant on his home computer. He was also charged with three counts of producing sexually explicit material involving a minor female between Jan. 22 and June 10, 2012. Grant admitted that he produced sexually explicit images of the minor female using a digital camera and his desktop computer.
Officials say Grant was also ordered to serve lifetime federally-supervised release at the end of his prison term.
