Newport man sentenced on child porn charge

Posted: Updated:

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man has been sentenced to five years in federal prison after he was convicted of receiving child pornography.

Court records say 42-year-old John Kuhl of Newport was being investigated on allegations that he had inappropriately touched four minors during a boat trip in Newport.

During that investigation, an examination of his cellphone showed pornographic images of an underage girl. Court records say Kuhl had asked the girl to take the photos of herself and send them to him, which she did.

Police and the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force assisted in the investigation and prosecution of Kuhl.
