A Fayette County man currently serving a statutory maximum ten-year federal prison sentence on a federal child pornography offense received an additional year in prison for failing to appear for a sentencing hearing originally scheduled in May 2012.

Brett David Bowyer, 34, of Scarbro, Fayette County, WV, previously pleaded guilty in September 2013 to failing to appear for sentencing as required.  Bowyer's sentence was handed down on Monday, Feb. 24 by Senior United States District Judge David A. Faber in Bluefield federal court.
