A Union County man will spend 25 years in prison after he was sentenced in federal court Thursday for production of child pornography, acting U.S. Attorney Jill Westmoreland Rose said.
Chad Blume, 34, of Waxhaw, will serve a lifetime of supervised release following his sentence. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
Blume, who pleaded guilty in 2013, used his cell phone to take sexually explicit pictures of a girl younger than 10, according to court records.
