Lueders man sentenced 87 months for child pornography offense

LUEDERS, TX - "Steven Michael Turnbow, 33, of Lueders, Texas, was sentenced ... to serve a total of 87 months in federal prison and an eight-year term of supervised release, following his guilty plea to receipt of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas," according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.   

Turnbow has been in custody since his arrest in March 2017. He pleaded guilty in May 2017 to one count of receipt of visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Between 2015 through July 30, 2016, Turnbow received, by way of the Internet, several images and videos which depict minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, according to the factual resume filed in the case.

"Turnbow used the Wi-Fi signal from his neighbor’s house to access the Internet. When he saw that his neighbors’ residence was being searched by law enforcement, he removed the computer hard drive from his desktop computer, which he had been using to search for, and download, images and videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and threw it in a river near his residence," according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. 

Correction made on Sept. 23 @ 12:18 p.m.
