Bangor man sentenced to 15 years in child porn case

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Bangor man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday after being convicted on multiple child porn charges.

During sentencing, a federal judge chastised Thomas Wright for befriending a teenage boy and taking sexually explicit pictures of him.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Wright admitted to taking the pictures of the then-16-year-old, and trading them in a child porn ring.

Federal agents say they found a collection of child porn on Wright's home computer.
