The Tampa Tribune is reporting that the Port Richey doctor convicted of possessing and receiving child pornography was sentenced this afternoon to 33 years and 9 months in federal prison.
The Doctor’s wife at the time was the person who alerted law enforcement to his criminal activity. She later testified against him at trial. Investigators say they found images of children as young as six on the Doctor’s office and home computers. At sentencing, family members of the Doctor testified to the Judge that they had been molested by the Doctor when they were children and that they have never been able to move on from the trauma that caused in their life.
The doctor’s medical license has been suspended indefinitely by the Florida Department of Health.
