Enterprise Man Gets 14 Years on Child Porn Charge

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A 52-year-old Enterprise man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for possessing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney's Office in Montgomery said Gregory James Shiver received the sentence after a judge found that he used his computer to possess more than 150 images of child pornography.

Some of the images allegedly depicted acts of sexual violence toward young children.

Canary said in a statement that the case against Shiver began in late December 2004 when police in Dothan and Enterprise were notified that Shiver had allegedly molested a five-year-old girl.

FBI agents executing a search warrant seized Shiver's computer, where images of suspected child pornography were found on the hard
drive.

Shiver will serve his federal prison sentence concurrently with a state sentence for sexual abuse of a minor. He will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release. He will also be on federal probation for the rest of his life.

    I think that it is a shame and a disgrace in this country... when a man gets 101 years for fighting dogs and another only gets a measly 14 years for SEXUAL ABUSE ON A CHILD? CLEARY the man should never see the light of day again and EVERYONE responsible for that sentence should serve it with him!!! Everyone!!! On the headlines of this very home page today I saw 2 sex crimes that resulted in a slap on the wrist and 1 dog fighting charge, 101 years....I am not, nor will I ever condone dog fighting...But when are people gonna wake up and see the immorality being shown not only in our society but IN OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM!!!!!!! How can people pass these judgement so wrongly, think the "SYSTEM WORKS", the sleep at night? If the people that shake their heads, in disgust, while listening to this sort of news, would open their mouths against such stupidity and ignorance, and use their heads when casting their votes for judicial office candidates... SHAME ON THEM ALL!!!!!SHAME ON THEM!!!
