Williamson County man gets 60 years for having child porn

GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — A Williamson County man was sentenced to 60 years behind bars for possession of child pornography.

James Weatherford, 58, avoided a trial by pleading guilty. He was sentenced Thursday afternoon.

Weatherford had more than 50,000 images of child pornography on his computers.

From November 2011 to January 2012 investigators say they downloaded the images, which they traced to Weatherford’s computer.
