Pontotoc Co. Man Pleads to Two Life Sentences in Child Porn Case

Posted: Updated:

PONTOTOC CO., OK -- A man released from the Department of Corrections just weeks earlier was arrested for possession of child pornography and using a computer to violate state laws. The Pontotoc County District Attorney's Office and the Sheriff's Department requested OSBI to investigate when authorities discovered Joshua Ron Summers, 32, was communicating to another inmate about having sex with a child.

OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children, Computer Crimes, and Child Abuse Response Team Agents, along with Pontotoc County Sheriff's Deputies served a search warrant on Summers' home on May 26, 2010.  Agents found numerous images of child porn on a computer and arrested Summers.

The four-time felon pleaded guilty today (9/28/10) and accepted a plea of two life sentences.  His former convictions include Solicitation of a Minor to Make Obscene Material, Lewd Molestation of a Child Under 16, and 2nd Degree Rape.
