Co-owner of Lewes Daily Market Sentenced for Child Pornography

Posted: Apr 05, 2018 11:39 AM Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. – The co-owner of the Lewes Daily Market, who pleaded guilty in December to accessing child pornography, has been sentenced to 40 months in federal prison followed by 10 years of supervised release in Delaware, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.

Based on documents and statements made in open court, 54-year-old John B. Alwood, of Lewes, Del., viewed child pornography several hours a day, every day, for 10 years.

David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, said Alwood did so using internet software that allowed him to watch and communicate with other pedophiles. The pornographic videos playing in these live-stream child pornography groups included, but were not limited to, the rape of prepubescent children.

This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations within the federal Department of Homeland Security.
