In February and June 2016, Thomas sent child pornography via a file sharing network to Special Investigator Kevin Atkins with the Attorney General’s Office. Investigators with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department also reported being sent child pornography from Thomas. After a search warrant was executed at his residence, additional child pornography was found on two of his laptops. In addition to the sentence of four years in prison, Thomas consented to the forfeiture of the laptops and will have to register as a sex offender upon his release. This case was prosecuted by Assistant Deputy Attorney General Kyle Senn.
