Man Sentenced for Child Pornography

EUGENE, Ore. – A man was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for a second child pornography conviction, Tuesday.

Christopher Lyn Sparks, 48, of Eugene, was sentenced for possessing child pornography and violating the terms of his supervised release.

Sparks was first sentenced to 51 months in prison in Eugene federal court in 2007 for possession of child pornography. He was released from custody and placed on federal supervised release in 2013.
