E’town man sentenced to 25 years for child pornography charges

An Elizabethtown man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison on child pornography charges. Officials with the U.S Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky made the announcement that Mathew Lyons had been sentenced in federal court on the charges Monday. According to court documents, Radcliff Police were notified in April of last year that a minor had posted on social media about engaging in sexual activity with an adult for money. Police seized the devices of 2 minors, and were granted consent to search them. Police eventually discovered that the adult they had communicated with and met was Lyons. A search of Lyons’ devices revealed explicit images of minors, as well as other conversations between him and another man, Robert Alan Thompson, who was sentenced in February on child pornography charges. Lyons will serve a life sentence of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.
