Halifax man set to plead guilty to more than 200 child porn counts

Thomas Dale Anderson, a 41-year-old Halifax resident, will plead guilty Monday in Halifax County Circuit Court to over 200 counts of distribution of child pornography, according to Commonwealth’s Attorney Kim White.

White said Tuesday she would put on extensive evidence to support Anderson’s plea during the hearing.

During a motions hearing Tuesday in Halifax County Circuit Court, the commonwealth nol prossed four counts of distribution of child pornography, while another was amended from a subsequent offense to a first offense of distribution of child pornography.

Anderson was indicted Jan. 10, 2011 by a Halifax County Circuit Court Grand Jury on a total of 227 counts relating to possession, reproduction and possession with intent to distribute child pornography.

A Halifax County Circuit Court jury was set to hear the case Monday before Anderson decided to enter guilty pleas to the charges.
