Rapid City man sentenced to 5 years for child porn charge

RAPID CITY, S.D. — A Rapid City man convicted of a child porn charge was sentenced last week to five years in federal prison.

Patrick Adkins, 49, was previously found guilty of attempted receipt of child pornography. In court it was revealed that Adkins communicated with someone he believed was a 14-year-old girl, hoping to have sex with her, and he also asked for the “minor” to send pornographic images to him.

After Adkins’ five-year sentence is done he will be on supervised release for another five years.
