Child porn perv sentenced to 16-years in prison

A 54-year-old child porn perv was sentenced to prison on Tuesday.

Eugene Schmick will serve 16 years behind bars.

This, after the Cleveland man made child pornography files available for sharing over the Internet through a file sharing program on 17 different dates between March 2, 2009, and July 6, 2009.

On July 16, 2009, Ohio ICAC investigators executed a search warrant at Schmick's Cleveland residence. Investigators performed a forensic examination on Schmick's desktop computer and discovered five child pornography videos and 108 child pornography images.

On November 7, 2011, Schmick pleaded guilty to 28 counts of pandering sexually-oriented matter involving a minor, 16 counts of illegal use of a minor in a nudity-oriented material or performance, and 1 count of possessing criminal tools.

Schmick will be classified as a Tier II Sexual Offender and will be required to register his address and place of employment every 180 days for the next 25 years.
