[ARCHIVED] Abilene Man Sentenced to 20 Years for Child Pornography


Abilene, Texas – A 37-year-old Abilene man has been sentenced to 20 years for Child Pornography charges.

Michael Douty was sentenced to 20 years, and 15 years of supervised release, for the Promotion of Child Sexual Abuse Material, by a federal district court. The sentence stems from a joint investigation between the Department of Homeland Security and Abilene Police in 2021. The investigation culminated with a search and arrest warrant being executed at the home of Douty.

The investigation indicated Douty uploaded inappropriate material through private chat applications. This led to the search and arrest warrants. The Department is proud of the work conducted by Abilene Detectives in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security.
