KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — An east Tennessee man was sentenced to serve 240 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to an indictment charging him with one count of transportation of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
The announcement was made on Friday by the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee and was the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Knoxville Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit.
According to documents filed in court and witness testimony, from November 2017 through February 2020, Timothy Chad Canady (Canady), 43, currently of Knoxville, possessed child sexual abuse material and transported it in interstate commerce using social media websites to communicate with others to trade links.
He used multiple phones, 15 email addresses and 14 usernames to transport and collect the material. The investigation revealed that Canady was in possession of 640 images and 153 videos of child sexual abuse material, including sadistic depictions portraying infants and toddlers engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Following his release from prison, Canady will be supervised by U.S. Probation for the remainder of his life. He will also be required to register with state sex offender registry where he lives, works, or attends school and comply with special sex offender conditions during his supervised release.
Canady was paroled in June 2015 after serving approximately 12 years on a 40-year sentence for previous unrelated offenses.
