      Quincy man sentenced in child porn case

      Eric Ahearn, 40

      An Adams County judge sentenced a Quincy man to 12 years in state prison on a child pornography charge.

      Eric Ahearn, 40, of 504 S. 8th, Street, was arrested in October 2012 on during an ongoing investigation by the Quincy Police Department.

      He was accused of both possessing and producing child pornography. Two charges were dropped in a plea deal that saw Ahearn plead guilty Jan. 6 to aggravated child pornography and lewd exhibition.

      Ahearn will get credit for the 502 days he already served while awaiting the disposition of his case.

      The minor was under the age of 13.
