HUNTINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Huntington man on Monday was sentenced to six years behind bars for child pornography.

Louis Hamlin II, 77, pleaded guilty to one count of knowingly producing child pornography with intent to distribute.

The judge also ordered Hamlin to serve a five-year term of supervised release and pay $100 for a special assessment.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a cyber tip that someone at a specific IP address in Vermont had uploaded child porn. Investigators linked that address to Hamlin and found images of child porn on his computer.

Louis Hamlin II is the father of one of the most infamous killers in the state. His son, Louis Hamlin III, was sentenced to 45 years to life in prison for the rape, torture and stabbings of two 12-year-old girls in 1981.
