Dixon man gets 24 years on child porn charges

DIXON – A 64-year-old Dixon man charged with 25 counts of possession of child pornography pleaded guilty Thursday to three of those charges, and was sentenced to 24 years in prison.

Doran D. Diggs was sentenced to three consecutive 8-year terms, and must serve at least 50 percent, or 12 years, before being eligible for parole.

Upon his release, he must register as a sex offender, and will be on mandatory supervised release for 3 years to life. He was given credit for 309 days served in Lee County Jail since his arrest Nov. 9.

Each count involved recorded sex acts performed by a child younger than 13. The other 22 counts were dismissed per a plea agreement.
