A Wytheville man will serve 10 years in prison for the possession of child pornography, according to the Wythe County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
Officials say 29-year-old Seth Aaron Wright, of Wytheville, was found guilty of 20 counts of possession of child pornography in Circuit Court on Tuesday, Oct. 4.
Overall, Wright was sentenced to 100 years in prison, with 90 years suspended.
This comes after a search warrant was issued for Wright’s home and authorities found images on two electronic devices.
Charges were placed by the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office’s Internet Crimes Against Children Division and the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office.
We’re told Wright will be on probation once he is released and he will be required to register as a Sex Offender with the Virginia State Police.
“My office, as well as the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office, will continue to protect our children and our community against crimes of this heinous nature. I can think of no better way to protect this community than separating the defendant from the law-abiding citizens of this County for the next decade,” Mike Jones said.
