From District Attorney Scott Perrilloux's Office:

AMITE---A Hammond man who pleaded no contest on child pornography charges has been sentenced to 10 years in the Department of Corrections.

21st Judicial District Court Judge Jeff Johnson sentenced 28-year-old Kristopher L. Morgan of Hammond to 10 years in the Department of Corrections following his plea in court last month.

Morgan was accused of pornography involving juveniles under 13 years of age.

Morgan had no prior convictions, and his sentence will be served without benefits, according to an agreement entered into the court record in November.

Johnson said sentencing guidelines allow a maximum of 40 years for pornography involving a child under the age of 13.

By pleading no contest, Morgan waived his right to a trial, including a jury trial. The defendant acknowledged that he understood that his no contest plea would also nullify any right to appeal his sentence.

Additionally, Morgan will be required to register as a sex offender, and that registration will be mandatory for 25 years following his release from prison.
