A Hobe Sound man could face more than 3,000 years of jail time after a judge denied a motion by his attorney to dismiss his case that charges him with 200 counts of child pornography.

Matthew Taby’s attorney, Richard Kibbey, argued for dismissal on the grounds that the law, which attaches a minimum of 10 years of jail time per count, was unconstitutional.

“If the statute was blatantly unconstitutional, I would have the authority and, maybe, obligation to find it to be unconstitutional,” said Martin Circuit Judge William Roby at Wednesday’s hearing. “But I do not find the statute to be unconstitutional.”
