Convicted Sex Offender Sentenced for Child Porn

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A man who previously served four years in prison for possession of child pornography has been sentenced to 15 years on another child porn charge.

Sixty-four-year-old William Zimmerman of Georgetown pleaded guilty in January to receipt of child pornography. He was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Wilmington.

According to court documents, Zimmerman came to the attention of authorities during an investigation of two other men who had allegedly uploaded child pornography through an AOL server.

Prosecutors say state investigators executed a search warrant at Zimmerman's home. Authorities say investigators recovered several pieces of computer equipment with more than 2,300 images of child pornography.
