No Jail Time for Virginia Sheriff’s Captain Charged with Child Porn Distribution

Chesterfield Captain Donny Lewis Dixon, 40, was arrested and charged with distribution of child porn after police executed a search warrant on his home.

However, Dixon will serve no jail time after reaching a plea deal in which he entered a written agreement with Hanover County prosecutors agreeing to be convicted of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to WTVR.

He also will not have to register as a sex offender, since the felony charge was dropped as part of the agreement.

Dixon received a sentence of one year in jail after his conviction.

However, the jail term will be suspended if he follow the conditions of his probation, which include no unsupervised visits with minors he isn’t related to and undergoing therapy.

Defense attorney Peter Baruch said there wasn’t enough evidence to pursue felony charges in the case.

“Rather than run the risk of a trial, we agreed to something that was a misdemeanor, did not involve the need for sex offender registration,” he said.

Dixon has since resigned from his position as captain at the Chesterfield County jail following his arrest, according to Richmond.com.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
