Former Monahans officer sentenced in child porn case

Local News

MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – A former Monahans Police officer has been sentenced in a charge pornography case that began late last year.

Officials say Marshal Lacy Hobbs received multiple sexually explicit videos and images from a girl under 18 in November 2019.

Hobbs pleaded guilty in December.

“When an officer who has sworn to protect his community instead decides to target a child for exploitation, we will be relentless in seeking justice,” U.S. Attorney John Bash said in a statement. “I am pleased with the sentenced imposed today.”

Hobbs has been sentenced to 87 months in federal prison.
