    Man Gets 8 Years in Prison in Child Porn Case

    A Maine man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for possessing child pornography and testifying falsely under oath in court.

    Joel Dudley of Westbrook was convicted following separate jury trials in February and April.

    The U.S. Attorney's office says police executed a search warrant at Dudley's apartment in August 2012 and seized two DVDs later found to contain numerous child pornography videos.

    In April 2013, Dudley testified at a federal hearing on a motion to suppress evidence he filed in the case. The U.S. Attorney's office said he falsely testified that he had repeatedly invoked his right to counsel during an interview with law-enforcement agents, but that the agents had continued to question him in violation of his constitutional rights.
