ALMA (KFSM) — Two Alma brothers were sentenced on Thursday (Nov. 17) to spend 20 years in prison each for producing child pornography.

Brett Karr, 28, and Adam Karr, 29, were both sentenced to three counts of production of child pornography, which is a felony, according to a press release from the Arkansas Department of Justice Western District. Following the 20 years in prison, both must spend five years in supervised release.

In August 2015, the River Valley Internet Crimes Against task force served a search warrant on the brothers’ residence in Alma, where they seized several electronic storage devices, which contained videos of Brett Karr engaging in sexually explicit conduct with a 9-year-old child, the release states.

Officers also found a disc, which belonged to Adam Karr, that showed videos and a picture of an 8-year-old child engaging in sexual explicit acts. According to the release, Adam Karr admitted that he filmed the videos on the disc.

The Karr investigation was part of Project Safe Childhood, which is a Department of Justice program dedicated to stopping the sexual exploitation of children.
