Palatka man sentenced to five years in child porn case

A Palatka man who was charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Thomas Allan Thornton, 54, was arrested in December 2017 after Putnam County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team members and detectives obtained a warrant to search his house as part of a two-month investigation.

While he was originally charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography, he was convicted of five counts, according to court records. He was sentenced Oct. 30. 

The other five charges were dropped.

In addition to prison time, he was sentenced to 10 years of probation and will have to register as a sexual offender.
