Dothan (WTVY)-- A Dothan man is headed to prison to serve a twenty year sentence on sex related charges.

John Lee Adkins, 19, pleaded guilty last month to 24 counts of producing pornography with a minor and one count of sodomy.

Defense attorney Shaun McGhee, arguing for a lesser sentence, told Houston County Circuit Judge Butch Binford the porn charges involve only one video recording. Each frame of the video, he said, resulted in a separate charge.

Assistant District Attorney Seth Brooks asked for a harsh sentence.
Binford ordered Adkins to serve 10 years on all 24 porn charges and another 10 years for sodomy.

He’ll be credited for ten months spent in jail since his April, 2017 arrest.

A request for probation was denied.
