PC Man Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison for Receipt of Child Pornography

43 year old Robert Eldridge plead guilty in January to two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Eldridge admitted that between January 1, 2012, and March 21, 2012, he downloaded in excess of 35 videos and 160 still images containing child pornography from a peer-to-peer network and that he “preferred minor females around 12 years of age.”

Due to a prior conviction for Promoting Sexual Performance of a Child, Eldridge faced an enhanced penalty of a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of fifteen years on Count One of his indictment and a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of ten years on Count Two.

Eldridge was also sentenced to a 10-year term of supervised release, which he will be required to serve upon completion of his prison sentence.
