An Izard County man, 59-year-old James Hix of Mount Pleasant, has been sentenced to 60 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction on child pornography charges.

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutlege says Hix pleaded guilty to six counts of possessing, distributing or viewing of matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child.

In April, Hix was arrested by the cyber crimes unit of the Attorney General’s office, where special agents seized multiple electronic devices from his residence.
