VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

With information from the US Attorney's Office-

Late Friday afternoon, Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announced that Michael Dawes Hall, age 25, of Tifton, was sentenced on July 29, 2013 by the Honorable Hugh Lawson in United Sates District Court, Valdosta Division, to sixty-one
(61) months imprisonment, to be followed by twenty-five (25) years supervised release.

Mr. Hall entered a plea of guilty on July 29, 2013 to Possession of Child Pornography. He admitted to possessing computers containing visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct. A "cyber tip" provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children from an internet service provider associated Hall's e-mail address to uploading images and a video of child exploitation onto an online social networking group.

Otto G. Pena, age 46, a resident of Valdosta, Georgia and Hialeah, Florida, was sentenced on July  29,  2013  by  the  Honorable  Hugh  Lawson  in  United  States  District  Court, Valdosta Division, to 120 months imprisonment, followed by twenty-five (25) years of supervised release.

Mr. Pena entered a plea of guilty on July 29, 2013 to Possession of Child Pornography. Court records showed that a search conducted on Mr. Pena's residence revealed numerous computers containing images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Mr. Pena admitted that he was in possession of more than 600 images of child pornography, that the images on the computers had been mailed, shipped or transported in interstate and foreign commerce.
