On Monday, Lee Gatlin was sentenced to 15 years in prison on two counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

Gatlin was originally arrested in June 2017 after his cell phone was found on the side of a Hannibal road.

Gatlin previously entered guilty pleas.

Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton says in a press release:

“The defendant requested a lesser sentence. But his possession of child pornography was no mistake and it was revealed through the sentencing report that he viewed this material for sexual gratification. I asked the Judge to send the message that this type of behavior won’t be tolerated. This is an appropriate sentence due to the vile nature of the crime.”
