Rapid City, SD – His name is Michael Richard Hanson and he is from Rapid City. This 53-year-old man was sentenced in federal court Thursday on child pornography charges.
Michael was sentenced to five years in prison, with 10 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay over $8,000 in restitution for possession of child pornography.
In June 2019, police searched Hanson’s home after receiving information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Cyber Tip Line about searches for child pornography.
The factual basis statement signed by Hanson said police found more than 700 images of child pornography and other images described as “obscene” and “extraordinarily violent defiling of women – both dead and alive.”
