Jefferson County man faces child porn charges

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A Jefferson County man has been charged with receiving, possessing and distributing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, in a statement Tuesday to FOX6 News, said Walter D. Spruill used the internet to distribute, receive and possess images of child pornography in Jefferson County from about May 20, 2009, to June 23, 2010.

"Distributing images of child pornography furthers the damage done to the children originally abused and exploited to create the images, and supports the  abhorrent industry that profits from that abuse," Vance said in the statement. "My office will prosecute anyone who creates, distributes or possesses child pornography."
