A Bangor man is going to prison for 15-years for producing child pornography. 63-year old Thomas Wright was sentenced Wednesday in Grand Rapids federal court. He was also sentenced to a lifetime term of supervised release. Wright befriended a sixteen year-old boy and began a sexual relationship with him. In March of 2009, the boy was taken to Disney World, where Wright took multiple sexually explicit pictures of him. Two years later Wright was identified as a suspect in a ring trading child pornography. While in court, the judge chastised Wright for sexually exploiting the victim. This case was part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse.
