Updated 10 months ago

An Augusta martial arts instructor who admitted to making child porn is going to prison for 40 years. Wade Hoover, 35, will be on supervised release for the rest of his life when he gets out of prison. Hoover was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court. He was originally charged in state court after police say they found child porn on his computer. Federal charges came after police reported finding photos and videos of Hoover sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy who appeared to be asleep. Hoover was owner and chief instructor at a martial arts academy in Lewiston.
