LAGRANGE, GA — The former owner of a local TV station has been sentenced to 1,000 years in prison on child pornography charges.

Peter Mallory was well-known and respected in Lagrange, where he owned TV 33, a low-power independent television station.

The station was located in a building on the West Georgia Technical College campus. When Lagrange Police Department Detective Christopher Pritchett first realized child pornography was being downloaded somewhere in the building, he thought it was a student’s doing, but he soon learned otherwise when investigators searched Mallory’s computer.

Pritchett said the nearly 26,000 files of movies and photos found on Mallory’s computer were more than investigators in Georgia had ever seen in one case.

“Everything that we found was the rape and torture of children,” Pritchett said.

Investigators said while they were searching for the child porn, they also stumbled upon photos of some of Mallory’s employees. Police said he had cameras under his desk that took photos underneath female employees’ skirts.

In December, a jury convicted Mallory of sexual exploitation of children, tampering with evidence and invasion of privacy. Earlier this month, he was sentenced to 1,000 years in prison.

Mallory’s attorneys argued that the images were downloaded by mistake and that the cameras were placed to catch whoever was stealing from Mallory’s office. They have asked for a new trial.

Channel 2’s Eric Philips spoke to the district attorney’s office, the Department of Corrections, the clerk of Court, and Mallory’s defense attorney and they all believe 1,000 years in the longest sentence in Georgia history.

Well, it's mostly figurative, because obviously he can't serve that long. But deserves every millisecond!

1,000 years plus castration would be better.

Just release him into the community. The problem will take care of itself AND no burden to society.

I hope they put as much effort into catch the actual producers of this stuff. Most stories seem to be about the consumers.

Does anyone else get really annoyed by these ridiculous sentences? Why can't they just give him life in prison without chance of parole? Adding extra time on top of this kind of sentence for compounded felonies serves no purpose and just makes the whole system look like a joke.

I think that dealing with child pornography is an extremely sick crime and needs to be punished!!

However, unless this guy was directly involved in producing the child pornography, I think that the sentence is rather excessive. I think that even a life sentence is excessive considering a violent rapist can get 20 years and out in 10 on parole. He may be a sick twisted **** of a man, but if he was just finding images online, collecting them and looking up girls skirts then 1000 years seems ****ed to me. But I don't know all the details...

It's tactical. Many jurisdictions can't sentence someone to life for certain felonies, so in cases like this they hit them with multiple counts and order that they serve tham consecutively instead of concurrently. Add up enough of them and even the minimum to get out on parole amounts to a life sentence.
