Robert Thompson Sentenced to 10 Years for Child Porn

An Exeter man was sentenced today to 10 years and one month in prison after pleading guilty to a federal charge of receiving child pornography, U.S. District Court.

Robert Thompson, 40, has been in federal custody since Nov. 11m after being identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Fresno, working with the Fresno County Sheriff's Department, as having accessed Web sites containing child pornography.

Authorities reported finding a computer in his home containing child pornography along with computer-altered images in which the faces of two girls Thompson knew taken from school pictures were digitally placed on images of the naked bodies of other girls, according to a U.S. Justice Department press release.

Thompson pleaded guilty in March to the child pornography charge, and his sentence was handed down in Fresno by U.S. District Court Judge Oliver W. Wanger.
