Child molester gets 12-year term for porn

From Staff Reports
 

A child molester was sentenced Friday in Spokane to 12 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography.

Donald D. Holloway, 51, of Valley, Wash., received a longer sentence because of previous convictions 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 in the 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.
