Man Sentenced for Possessing Child Pornography

GRANITE CITY, IL. (KMOX) – A Granite City man will spend over eight years in prison for admittedly  possessing child pornography.

35 year old Michael Bailey pleaded guilty last September.

The investigation took officials to a home that Bailey shared with other individuals where they seized eight computers.

Besides the jail time, Bailey was ordered to pay 600-dollars in fines and a 200 dollar special assessment.
