A Vandalia man convicted of three counts of possession of child pornography earlier this year has his second motion to reconsider the sentence imposed on him denied. 57-year old William Frakes and defense attorney Monroe McWard appeared in front of Judge Kevin Parker on Tuesday and presented arguments as to why Parker should reconsider Frakes’ sentence. McWard argued that the counts that Frakes was charged with were one act, one crime and that multiple convictions should not have been allowed as two counts were repetitive and one could have been a lesser charge despite the fact that three convictions came from counts for three separate photos possessed by Frakes on his cell phone. Following arguments, Judge Parker again denied the motion to reconsider. McWard informed the court that he plans to file an appeal and that he would like to work with an appellate defender to which Parker informed him that the appellate court would have to approve.
