Attorney General Steve Marshall Announces Conviction of Autauga County Man for Possession of Child Pornography

(MONTGOMERY)—Attorney General Steve Marshall announced the conviction and sentence Thursday of an Autauga County man on multiple charges of possession of child pornography. Robert Christopher Davis, 50, of Prattville, pleaded guilty on November 15, 2021, and was sentenced May 26, 2022, on 10 counts of Possession of Obscene Matter.

Davis was sentenced to 10 years, which was split for him to serve two years in the
Department of Corrections, followed by three years of unsupervised probation. Davis must immediately register as a sex offender and abide by all requirements of Alabama’s Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

“Sex crimes against children are tragic because of the devastation they wreak upon the victims’ innocence and trust,” said Attorney General Marshall. “It is vital that we take these violations seriously and punish those who commit these vile crimes.”

Attorney General Steve Marshall commended his Criminal Trials Division for its
successful prosecution of this case, noting in particular Assistant Attorneys General Tara Ratz and Jillian Evans, as well as the Special Victims Unit of his Investigations Division.
