Eiland receives split sentence in child porn case

Former Andalusia Area Chamber of Commerce Director Ashley Bostwick Eiland received a split sentence, including both prison time and probation, Thursday in front of Circuit Judge Ashley McKathan.

Eiland pleaded guilty in May to one count of possession of obscene matter for possessing nude photographs of a child under the age of 17. Following her plea, McKathan sentenced Eiland to a ten-year prison term.

Thursday, Eiland’s ten-year sentence was suspended by McKathan in favor of a split sentence that will include 15 months in prison, as well as a five-year probation term.
