Tyler, TX Man Facing 150 Years in Prison for Child Pornography Charges
We know that horrible and disgusting crimes happen in every part of the world, including here in East Texas but you hate to hear about things like this in our community. As just last week the United States Marshalls arrested 43-year-old Tyler, TX resident Casey Townshend Collier on multiple charges of Possession of Child Pornography.
As you know the state of Texas doesn’t take charges like this lightly and Collier is now facing six charges of that same crime, during that arrest law enforcement also charged the suspect with Possession of a Controlled Substance. Each of the charges of child pornography come with a $500,000 bond, when you add the $10,000 bond for controlled substance, it would take millions to get Collier out on bond.
All of the Charges Combined Equal 150+ Years in Prison
Each charge of child pornography in the state of Texas comes with a punishment of between 2 and 20 years, and normally when you have multiple charges for the same offense the judge normally doesn’t take it easy on you. If Collier is found guilty of the crimes he is being charged with, it’s very possible that he spends the rest of his life in prison.
Child Pornography Has a Serious Punishment in Texas
This case shows you that the state of Texas will not allow crimes against children to go unpunished, and there will be harsh penalties if you are found guilty of this crime. The suspect in this case is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
