Clovis man found guilty of 25 counts of child pornography

A Clovis man is found guilty of 25 counts of possession of child pornography.

Thirty-five-year-old Willard Ballard will now face more than 37 years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Ballard took his personal computer to a Clovis resident to perform manual updates.

He admitted to the resident that there was child pornography on the computer and he wanted to erase his entire external memory drive.

The resident notified law enforcement of the child porn.

Ballard must complete a pre-sentence diagnostic evaluation prior to final sentencing.
