FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas- A man in Sugar Land pleaded guilty to charges of child pornography possession and promotion.

According to the Fort Bend County District Attorney's Office, 27-year-old Michael Joseph Hall pleaded guilty on Monday and agreed with prosecutors to serve seven years in prison.

The assistant DA says they received a tip that someone was sharing child porn images with a minor in February 2017. Investigators say they found Hall was in possession of child porn and confessed to distributing it.

“This case illustrates the importance of pro-active investigations in identifying perpetrators who would otherwise not be held accountable for their crimes," said Assistant District Attorney Michael L. Hartman. "And without consequences, these perpetrators will not stop."

Hall will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
