He'll do all 12 years most likely as there is no parole in federal system. the judge also ordered him to do 25 years of federal supervision when he gets out.
A 30-year-old man was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison for receiving child pornography.
Timothy Curry apologized to U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez for his conduct related to child porn, but said nothing about another allegation: After FBI agents gave him a polygraph test and he failed it, he admitted touching a 10-year-old girl for sexual gratification.
Curry's lawyer, assistant federal public defender Kurt May, asked the judge to give Curry the five-year minimum. He argued that there have been disparities nationally in sentencing defendants charged with having child porn, and noted that some with similar conduct as his client have even received probation.
