Ex-Kingsport officer pleads guilty to child porn charge

An ex-Kingsport police officer, who resigned in July following his arrest on a sealed indictment out of Shreveport Louisiana, has pleaded guilty to a federal child pornography charge, while his punishment is yet to be determined.

According to court-appointed attorney Howard Mowery, his client Richard Chandler pleaded guilty Thursday to engaging in a child exploitation enterprise in exchange for the dismissal of his other two charges, which were consipiracy to distribute child pornography and advertising the distribution of child pornography. There is no agreement as to Chandler’s punishment, and a sentencing hearing will not be scheduled until after the probation office compiles a pre-sentencing report.
