A 51-year-old Dallas man whom authorities found with more than 600 images of child pornography stored on computer disks in his home was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. In a rare move, U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn also on Friday ordered that Jeffrey Davis forfeit his house in the 2000 block of Williams Way near Buckner Boulevard and Ferguson Road in Far East Dallas because authorities argued it was used to commit the crime. Judge Lynn also ordered that Mr. Davis be on supervised release for 20 years after he gets out of prison. Mr. Davis pleaded guilty in October. He told authorities that he purchased the illegal images from child porn Web sites using his credit card. In 2000, Mr. Davis was convicted of possession of child pornography and sentenced to 15 months in prison, plus three years of supervised release.
