Man gets 200 years for child porn, molestation

A Macon man faces a 200-year prison sentence after pleading guilty Monday to child porn and molestation charges.

As a result of an investigation that began with an Internet watchdog agency in Ireland, Troy Bennett, 35, pleaded guilty to 24 counts of child exploitation and two counts of child molestation.

Superior Court Judge Stan Smith sentenced him to 200 years in prison, plus 20 years on probation. By Bennett's own agreement, he can be considered for probation only if he agrees to chemical castration.

Dublin District Attorney Craig Fraser said Bennett most likely will never become eligible for probation.

All of the charges relate to more than 10,000 images of child pornography found in Bennett's home in Macon, Fraser said. The 24 child exploitation charges are for possession of pornographic photos. The two child molestation charges are the result of photos of two Twiggs County children - one only 2 years old - being molested by Bennett, Fraser said.

The other photos, which come from around the world, depict other adults with children or children alone, Fraser said. Some of the images showed adults having sex with infants, he said.

"Those photos would make you turn white to look at them," Fraser said.
