Split sentences given in obscenity, solicitation case

A man who in November pleaded guilty to transmitting obscene material to a child and electronic solicitation of a child received split sentences for the crimes.

Bruce Anthony Newburn, 21, of Calvert, appeared in Circuit Court in Bay Minette on Jan. 12 and received a 10-sentence for sending obscene material to a child.

Last March, Newburn sent inappropriate pictures to an unrelated 13-year-old girl, according to David Matheny with the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office.
