Prison Sentence for Producing Child Pornography
ALBRIGHTSVILLE — A man was sentenced to prison for producing child pornography.
Grant Harris, 38, formerly of Albrightsville, was sentenced on Monday to 16 and a half years in prison.
According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Harris pleaded guilty to persuading a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct in order to make child porn.
The crime took place between 2008 and 2009 when the victim was 8 years old.
Harris was indicted by a federal grand jury in November 2015, shortly after police discovered the child pornography on a computer used by Harris.
Harris was also ordered to serve 15 years on supervised release following his prison sentence, and he must register as a sex offender.
