Ex-airman gets 5-year prison sentence over child porn case
WILMINGTON, Del. — A judge has sentenced a former Dover Air Force Base airman who was accused of amassing what prosecutors called a horrific collection of child pornography while using sophisticated computer technology to hide his identity.
A judge Thursday sentenced Robert Hollingsworth, 27, of Byron, Ill., to five years in prison and ordered him to pay $48,000 in restitution. Hollingsworth, who was arrested at the base in January, pleaded guilty in June to one count of possession of child pornography of a minor under the age of 12. He faced up to 20 years behind bars.
Authorities say Hollingsworth collected more than 10,000 images and 3,000 videos of children being sexually exploited.
