Man sentenced in child porn case
A Virginia man was sentenced to five years in prison Tuesday for distribution of child pornography, U.S. Attorney for the District Ronald C. Machen Jr. said.
James E. McCreary, 56, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman in the District after pleading guilty June 3 to visiting a public Internet chat room in November, where he volunteered to an undercover police officer that he wanted to contact a child and photograph sexual activity with her
In later chats on an instant messaging service, McCreary sent the undercover officer 14 photographs of prepubescent children in erotic or nude poses, including four pornographic images.
After arranging with the officer to meet a fictitious child, McCreary was arrested after taking the train from his home to Fredericksburg to the District carrying a digital camera around his neck.
McCreary also faces 10 years of supervised release as a registered sex offender.
