    A 38-year-old Bond County man convicted of possession of child pornography was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison yesterday, according to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton.

    Daniel Allen Neer, formerly of Mulberry Grove, was ordered to serve the statutory maximum 10 year sentence consecutively to an undischarged six-year sentence he is serving based upon his 2012 conviction in Bond County, for aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between the age of 13 and 16.

    The federal case is based upon conduct which occurred in May 2011, and the State of Illinois case was based upon criminal acts that occurred in 2010.

    Following release from his federal sentence, Neer will serve a lifetime term of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender.
