The Longest-Time: Child Porn Charges Lead to 885 Year Sentence

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— LawFuel.com – Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution today announced the sentencing of Shawn Ryan Thomas, 31, to 885 years in prison for possession of massive amounts of child pornography.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s investigation into Thomas for possession of child pornography revealed that Thomas communicated with an informant regarding his plans to kidnap a child, kill the parents and sexually batter the child while producing child pornography. FDLE quickly intercepted Thomas before Thomas was able to successfully carry out his plans.

The Honorable Marlene Alva, Circuit Judge in Seminole County, sentenced Thomas to 885 years in prison on 59 counts of possession of child pornography, 15 years for each count, and 15 years of sex offender probation for one count of possession of child pornography.

The Office of Statewide Prosecution prosecutes multi-circuit organized crime while working regularly with federal and state counterparts to coordinate efforts against criminal activity. The office provides proactive partnership to law enforcement and is not limited to geographic or judicial boundaries.
