Man sentenced for possession and distribution of child porn

14 months for child porn

A Vancouver senior has been sentenced to 14 months in jail after pleading guilty to child porn charges.

Vancouver police say 68-year-old John Penry Roberts pleaded guilty on Monday to possession and distribution of child porn, according to CTV News Vancouver.

Roberts was charged following an investigation in 2017, where police raided his home and seized multiple electronics.

Const. Tania Visintin describes the case as "a disturbing investigation for detectives" as they had to review more than 1.9 million images and videos. This includes 20,000 images and 4,000 videos which were determined to be child pornography.

While Roberts' address was not disclosed, authorities say he lived there for decades and it was one block away from an elementary school, daycare and park.
