Man sentenced for having drugs and child porn in Gary

Updated: December 11, 2012 6:12AM



A Gary man will serve a little more than 18 years in prison after pleading guilty in two separate cases to receiving child pornography and drug possession.

Scott Adkins, 69, was originally arrested in 2009 after federal officials found 12 packages of heroin stuffed in two dolls being shipped to Adkins’ house. Adkins later told police that the dolls should contain about 300 grams of heroin.

A month before he went to trial in that case, he was again charged in a separate case for possessing child pornography that officials found while searching his home during the initial drug raid. They found about 22 videos with a little more than four hours of montages of children being abused.

He pleaded guilty in the pornography case.
