Gavel and GLT logo

A federal judge in Peoria has sentenced a Washington, Ill., man to more than 13 years in prison for child pornography.

Eric Ingram, 31, pleaded guilty in December to receiving pornographic Facebook messages from a 15-year-old girl he urged to perform and supply him with sexually explicit material. Prosecutors also said Ingram lived near the victim in the case and had messaged her about meeting in person.

Facebook notified authorities about the case in September 2018.
