Child molester sentenced for child porn

A child molester was sentenced today to 12 years in federal prison for possession child pornography.

Donald D. Holloway, 51, of Valley, Wash., received a longer sentence because of previous conviction in Stevens County for second-degree and third-degree child molestation.

The level 3 sex offender was arrested in December 2009 after three computers containing child pornography were seized from his home 2900 block of Bakie Road in Valley, along with digital media and printed images.

Holloway was already on probation for a 2002 marijuana conviction. He also was convicted of indecent liberties in 1981.

“Repeat offenders have proven that they have no place in our neighborhoods,” Michael Ormsby, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, said in a prepared statement.

The case was prosecuted under the federal Project Safe Childhood initiative.

Accordng to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Project Safe Childhood (PSC) Initiative has five major components:

• Integrated federal, state, and local efforts to investigate and prosecute child exploitation cases, and to identify and rescue child victims

• Participation of PSC partners in coordinated national initiatives

• Increased federal enforcement in child pornography and enticement cases

• Training of federal, state, and local law enforcement agents

• Community awareness and educational programs

To report these crimes, visit www.cybertipline.com or call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s hotline at 1-800-843-5678.
