The case was first initiated by a Guthrie police officer conducting an undercover investigation into the sharing of child pornography over the Internet.

According to the investigation, Mowery distributed several files containing pornographic images of children to a Guthrie police officer.

Hundreds of child porn pictures were found in Mowery's home, investigators said.

He was convicted this week and sentenced to serve 15 years of probation, according to court records.
