Ga. Doctor Andrew Sutton Sentenced in Child Pornography Case

Andrew Sutton

A Georgia doctor is heading to prison in a child pornography case.

A judge sentenced 48-year-old Andrew Sutton — an ear, nose and throat doctor from metro Atlanta — to eight years in prison Friday. Sutton had previously pleaded guilty to federal charges.

Authorities arrested Sutton last March on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography. Prosecutors say he had asked an undercover officer for nude photos of two children and later transmitted pornographic images of other children to the undercover investigator.

Police say they found other images of child pornography on computers seized from the doctor’s home.

Sutton’s attorneys argued he suffers from an addiction and should be sentenced to a treatment facility rather than prison.
