WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A man from Pender County was sentenced in federal court Monday for charges stemming from a child pornography investigation.

Bruce William Nott, 53, was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment, followed by a life-term of supervised release and he is required to register as a Sex Offender. Nott pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography.

He was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for the crime in May 2013. An investigation was conducted by several local law enforcement agencies, the SBI, and the FBI in 2010 where they found several computers, thumb drives, cameras, and cell phones which held a combined 388 images of child pornography.

This case was part of the Project Safe Childhood initiative, aimed at holding criminals, that exploit children, to the full extent of the law.
