4chan Child Porn Fan Sentenced To Three Years In Federal Pen

The 4chan user who admitted downloading illicit images of children from the notorious web site has been sentenced to three years in prison on a federal child pornography conviction, court documents show.

Collin Campbell, a Navy Machinist’s Mate, was arrested in February after a folder containing “between 10-20 images of child pornography” was discovered on his iPhone by a fellow seaman aboard the USS Boxer in San Diego. During the ensuing Naval Criminal Investigative Service probe, Campbell admitted that he had downloaded child porn “from the website www.4chan.org.”

Campbell was sentenced last week by U.S. District Court Judge Larry Burns, who also ordered him to serve 10 years of probation upon his release from prison. Campbell, pictured in the above mug shot, faced a maximum of 20 years in custody.
