Columbus woman sentenced to over 10 years for child pornography possession
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A Columbus woman is sentenced to more than ten years in federal prison for the possession of child pornography.
34-year-old Townes Borum will be under supervised release after completing her time behind bars and will be required to register as a sex offender.
The US Attorney’s Office said in May 2020, they received information about Borum sending nude photos of a minor to a man in New Jersey. The man claimed he paid the defendant’s rent and other expenses in exchange for pictures and videos.
As a result, Borum’s house was searched that same month.
Investigators say they found messages between her and others discussing the sale of the child sexual abuse material. Advertisements were also found online.
