A 47-year-old Myrtle Beach man has been sentenced to 7 years in prison for child porn charges, according to a news release from United States Attorney Sherri A. Lydon

James Robert Fix was sentenced to 84 months imprisonment for Possession of Child Pornography by United States District Judge Bryan Harwell, of Florence.

After his release, he will have to be under supervised release for life and make a restitution payment of $1,000. He will also have to register as a sex offender, attend sex offender treatment, refrain from unsupervised contact with children or use of the internet without approval, and submit to polygraph examinations, according to the release.

The evidence presented at the guilty plea hearing established that federal agents executed a search warrant at Fix’s Myrtle Beach residence on November 24, 2015, based on information that he was receiving child pornography via email.

On that same day agents also interviewed Fix who reportedly admitted to possessing child pornography and surrendered his laptop computer and cellphone to the agents. During forensic analyses agents found numerous videos and images containing child pornography, the release stated.

The case was investigated by agents with ICE-Homeland Security Investigations. Assistant United States Attorney A. Bradley Parham of the Florence office prosecuted the case.
