Slidell man pleads guilty possessing, making child porn

SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) - A Slidell man pleaded guilty Monday to four counts of possession of child pornography and 20 counts of production of child pornography.

David Michael Hall, 34, was sentenced to 40 years in prison—20 years on the possession charges and 20 years on the production charges to run consecutively.

The district attorney's office was preparing for jury selection when Hall agreed to the plea.

Hall was first arrested for possession of child pornography in November of 2012, when cyber crime investigators tracked the child pornography to him. Two computers and a phone were among the items seized when officers executed a search warrant at Hall's home. After further analysis of the evidence, officers determined that Hall was producing child pornography, and he was arrested on the additional charges in February 2014.
