Decatur man pleads guilty to 10 counts of child pornography

A Decatur man was sentenced to five years of probation Friday after pleading guilty to 10 counts of child sexual exploitation.

Douglas Solomon, 71, was arrested in July 2017 and initially charged with violating the state’s Electronic Pornography and Child Exploration Prevention Act. Last year, he was indicted on 10 counts of child sexual exploitation, nine of which were felonies.

According to the indictment, Solomon was accused of electronically possessing sexual images of minors.

As part of his guilty plea, he must also register as a sex offender.

Solomon lives near downtown Decatur, according to court records.
