No Jail Time for Virginia Sheriff's Captain Charged with Child Porn Distribution

A sheriff's captain in Virginia was convicted of a misdemeanor after he was charged with distributing child porn.

Chesterfield Captain Donny Lewis Dixon, 40, was arrested and charged with distribution of child porn after police executed a search warrant on his home.

However, Dixon will serve no jail time after reaching a plea deal in which he entered a written agreement with Hanover County prosecutors agreeing to be convicted of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to WTVR.

He also will not have to register as a sex offender, since the felony charge was dropped as part of the agreement.

Dixon received a sentence of one year in jail after his conviction.

However, the jail term will be suspended if he follow the conditions of his probation, which include no unsupervised visits with minors he isn't related to and undergoing therapy.

Defense attorney Peter Baruch said there wasn't enough evidence to pursue felony charges in the case.

"Rather than run the risk of a trial, we agreed to something that was a misdemeanor, did not involve the need for sex offender registration," he said.

Dixon has since resigned from his position as captain at the Chesterfield County jail following his arrest, according to Richmond.com.
