HOLLY SPRINGS, NC — A man from Holly Springs was sentenced to 14 years in prison for child pornography.

Wayne Kenneth Dare was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years of supervised release for receiving child sexual abuse material. A 41-year-old man pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.

Justice Department agents found 1,236 images and 488 videos of child sexual abuse on Dare’s digital devices, with some content depicting young children and what was described as “sadistic and masochistic behavior.” At least two videos were over an hour long.

Officers and agents arrived at Dare’s home to execute a search warrant, and Dare admitted to receiving the materials. Dare told law enforcement that he had been viewing child pornography since 2009.

The arrest comes after detectives from Kerry Police carried out an active investigation into a peer-to-peer sharing network in an attempt to identify individuals selling and collecting child sexual abuse material.
