Upper Moreland man gets jail sentence for child porn possession

Many people in Pennsylvania and elsewhere fall into the trap of pornography, and it quickly becomes an addiction. For some people, this addiction leads them to seek child pornography. Because it exploits children, people who are caught with child pornography are often prosecuted and punished severely. Often, these people also need help to overcome their addiction.

While an Upper Moreland man was browsing the Internet on his computer, he stumbled onto child pornography and became hooked. Since then, he downloaded more than 100 child pornography videos onto his computer. About a year ago, investigators began to notice that a computer on a shared network had been downloading these types of files and traced the computer to the man.

The man was sentenced to eight to 23 months in prison, but he has already served several months of this sentence and may be released within several days. For the Upper Moreland man, much of the punishment will come after he is released from prison. He will be on probation for fours years, and during that time he will be closely monitored; also, he will not be permitted to have a home computer.

Hopefully, the man will seek treatment for his addiction to child pornography. Even if he recovers, however, he will likely remain a registered sex offender for the rest of his life. Because the punishment for sex crimes is so severe, it is best for people who are facing these charges to seek the help of an attorney as soon as possible.
