Augusta man sentenced to 1 decade for child porn possession

AUGUSTA, GA — An Augusta man, formerly of Durham, N.C., was sentenced to one decade in prison and 20 years of probation after the term is finished.

Carlton Jevon Barnette, 27, of Augusta, was given the terms on July 9 by US District Court for the Southern District of Georgia Augusta Division judge James Randal Hall.

Judge Hall also ordered Mr. Barnette to register as a sex offender immediately, before being returned to the custody of the United States Marshals Service to serve his sentence.

Mr. Barnette pleaded guilty to the charges against him stemming from his arrest during the summer of 2011 after he downloaded child pornography from Atlanta, Augusta and Durham.
