A Licking County man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple counts of possessing child pornography.  

35-year-old William Weekley pleaded guilty last April.  Weekley will be subject to mandatory supervision for the rest of his life. Prosecutors say Weekley engaged in horrific sexual abuse of a girl, recorded it and shared it with others. Six other men who interacted online with Weekley have been convicted and sentenced. They are 51-year-old Timothy Sullivan of Canal Winchester, 43-year-old Brian Perkins of Mount Vernon, 64-year-old Franklin Perry of Columbus, 30-year-old Grant Michalski of Columbus, 35-year-old Eric Zevely of Columbus and 33-year-old Jordan Makowski.
