Feds Sentence Blackshear Teenager
Tuesday, 08 July 2014

July 8--  Devin Spencer Williams, 19, of Blackshear, Georgia was sentenced last week by United States District Court Chief Judge Lisa Godbey Wood to 17½ years in prison, followed by ten years of supervised release, for distributing child pornography.  Williams pled guilty to two counts of distributing child pornography in January, 2014.  He will be required to register as a sex offender. 

          According to the evidence presented at Williams’s plea and sentencing hearings, between March 2013 and July 2013, Williams, while in both the Blackshear and Brunswick areas, exchanged email messages with various individuals in order to trade child pornography.  In fact, when his computer and mobile devices were searched pursuant to federal search warrants, agents found hundreds of images depicting child sexual abuse.  In addition, the evidence revealed that in July 2013, Williams engaged in a number of email chats with an individual in Maine – who is facing federal charges there – who was actively molesting children in his care.  Through those emails, Williams requested and received a number of images depicting the sexual molestation of those children. 

          At the conclusion of the hearing, Williams, who had been in custody since his arrest in October 2013, was returned to the custody of the United States Marshal Service to serve his sentence.
