PASCAGOULA, Miss.–Taking inappropriate photos of a 15-year-old and trading them and other pornographic images of children is why Robert Hinger, Jr., of Jackson County, will be spending the next 12 years in the state pen.
Hinger pled guilty in court Monday and got a 30-year sentence, but only 12 of those years to actually serve behind bars, said Atty. Gen. Jim Hood.
He was also ordered to pay a $7500 fine and $500 to the Mississippi Crime Victims Fund. He must also register as a sex offender upon his release.
This is how Hinger got in trouble: The Attorney General’s investigation uncovered that the defendant had emailed pornographic images to others and had taken those inappropriate pics of a 15-year-old girl.
