Man sentenced to two years in prison for child porn

Anchorage Daily News / adn.comNovember 6, 2012 

A Superior Court judge Monday sentenced a 22-year-old Anchorage man to two years in prison on charges of possessing child pornography.

Judge Michael Wolverton also sentenced Talon Martz to five years of supervised probation following his two-year prison term.

Prosecutors said Martz was arrested in December 2010 after sending images and videos of the sexual abuse of pre-pubescent children to an undercover Anchorage Police Department detective and members of the Alaska Internet Crimes Against Children task force.

An investigation found dozens of images of child pornography on his computer, according to prosecutor Marika Athens.

Prosecutors said Martz didn't appear to have harmed or attempted to harm any children in Alaska.

He will be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.
