Amarillo Man Faces 80 Years in Child Porn Case

Amarillo, Texas   A 36-year-old Amarillo man faces up to 80 years in prison after being convicted in a federal child pornography case.

The U-S attorney's office today announced Donald Dean Rowell will be sentenced May 30th in Amarillo.

A jury yesterday convicted Rowell on two counts of receipt of child pornography, one count of receipt of child obscenity and one count of possession of child pornography.

Rowell also could be fined as much as one (M) million dollars in the Internet-related home computer case.

Investigators say Rowell -- from 2004 until mid-2006 -- downloaded hundreds of images of minor children engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

His home was raided last July.
