Grayville Man Sentenced to Prison for Child Pornography

CARMI – A Grayville man was sentenced in White County Court Thursday afternoon to the Illinois Department of Corrections for Child Pornography.

White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud says 33-year-old Gabriel I. Goolsby was sentenced to 15 years in IDOC with three years of mandatory supervised release. He will also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Aud says Goolsby was convicted of dissemination of child pornography of a child under the age of 13 years engaged in an act of sexual penetration. He pled guilty to one count in January with the sentencing hearing ultimately taking place yesterday.

Goolsby’s case was investigated by the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force with his arrest occurring in July of 2020.
