Madison man headed to prison for child exploitation

Timothy Flanagan, 40, entered the guilty plea Monday in Madison County Circuit Court and was sentenced to 40 years, with 20 years to serve in prison, Attorney General Jim Hood said in a Wednesday news release.

Flanagan was arrested in Flora in August by investigators with the Attorney General’s Cybercrime Unit, with assistance from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department. The investigation revealed that Flanagan was downloading child pornography from the internet.

Hood said Flanagan pleaded guilty in 2014 in Wyoming to three counts of possession of child porn and was registered as a sex offender.
