VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Information from Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia-

Brandon Meredith Hardy, 23, was sentenced on Monday, October 28, 2013,  in Valdosta federal court to 108 months (nine years) in prison, for possession of child pornography.

He will be under supervision for 15 years and will be monitored as a registered sex offender.

Hardy entered a plea of guilty on July 17, 2013, to one count of possession of child pornography.

In his plea, Mr. Hardy admitted that in September 2010, during his time as an airman at Moody Air Force Base, he used a computer at the base to search for and download child pornography. As part of an undercover investigation, a federal search warrant was executed on Mr. Hardy's room on November 4, 2010.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert D. McCullers.
