FLORENCE, Ala. – A Shoals man has been sentenced under a plea agreement for possession of child pornography.

Mykell Devon Ramsey, 20, will spend the next 18 months in the Lauderdale County Work Release Program.  Ramsey was indicted earlier this year on charges of dissemination of obscene matter of a person under 17, intent to disseminate obscene matter of a person under 17, and possession of obscene matter of a person under 17.

Police say Ramsey sent the child pornography to a friend in California in 2013.
