WICHITA, Kansas – A registered sex offender from Hamilton County has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on a federal child pornography charge, U.S. attorney Barry Grissom said.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 47-year-old Wade H. Dewey, from the Hamilton County town of Syracuse, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that he was found in possession of images and videos depicting child pornography. He obtained the child pornography via the internet.

Dewey had a 1999 conviction in Pueblo, Colorado, for attempted sexual assault of a child. He admitted in court Monday that he was found last September with images and videos of child pornography that he obtained via the Internet.
