PASCAGOULA, Mississippi — A Pascagoula man will spend 12 years in prison for possessing and producing child pornography.
Attorney General Jim Hood says 48-year-old Robert Hinger Jr. appeared before Circuit Court Judge Kathy King Jackson on Monday and pleaded guilty to four counts of child exploitation along with one count of production of child pornography.
