BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — A man from Beckley will spend the next three decades in prison for attempted production of child pornography.

According to court documents, Douglas Humphrey, 33, of Beckley, admitted he had talked to an underage girl on Snapchat back in August 2020.

Humphrey was arrested on August 26, 2020 when he arrived at the decided location to meet the underage girl.
