Greeneville Man Sentenced To 50 Years For Child Pornography
A Greeneville man has been sentenced to 600 months in prison after pleading guilty Thursday to producing child pornography. 35 year old Cameron Ty Bolyard entered that guilty plea before a federal judge in Greeneville Thursday. Bolyard plead guilty to counts one and two of an indictment charging him with use of a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing child pornography and being a parent of a minor, knowingly permitted such minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing those visuals. According to the written plea agreement filed with the court, investigators received multiple CyberTips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children where Bolyard uploaded multiple images and videos he created to his Google Account of child pornography. Additionally, Bolyard uploaded over a hundred videos and images of child sexual abuse material, unrelated to the minor victim, to his account.
U.S. Attorney Francis M. Hamilton III said “This 50-year prison sentence sends a clear message that preying upon and sexually victimizing the most innocent and vulnerable victims, our children, will not be tolerated.” Hamilton also stated “We are grateful for the work of the Homeland Security Investigations- Johnson City Office and the Knoxville Police Department’s Internet Crimes against Children Group.”
