Monahans Man Sentenced for Having Child Pornography

MIDLAND - A Monahans man will spend the next 17 and a half years in prison for having child pornography.

35-year-old Ricky Lynn Currier of Monahans was sentenced Friday in Midland Federal Court.

Currier will also have to be on supervised release for the rest of his life after he gets out of prison.

Currier was arrested in November of 2008 by the Monahans Police Department at his home on a state charge that he had sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl.

A forensic examination of his laptop computer found more than 100 images of child pornography as well as 11 videos that were downloaded from the Internet.
