Union County man sentenced Monday had 67 videos, 700 images of child porn at home

A 29-year-old Union County man will spend six years in prison for sharing child pornography over the Internet.

Sean Hammond of Monroe pleaded guilty in November and was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Charlotte.

In 2015, law enforcement learned Hammond was sharing child pornography on the Internet using a peer-to-peer network, court records show.

Investigators found about 700 images and 67 videos of child pornography on a cellphone and computer at his home, according to prosecutors.
