Stockton man sentenced for child pornography

SACRAMENTO, CA - A Stockton man was sentenced to 12 and a half years in prison for receiving child pornography.

Wilfred Frank Luce Jr., 49, learned his term in Sacramento federal court Friday. Luce's sentence will be followed by a 10-year supervised release.

According to court documents, beginning on March 12, 2011, law enforcement identified Luce's computer sharing and offering files of child pornography through an Internet file-sharing service. Federal investigators served a search warrant at Luce's residence in Stockton, and detectives found a file-sharing program was actively downloading child porn and that Luce had downloaded 440 images and 212 videos of child porn.

At Luce's sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. said the nature and circumstances of the offense warranted the sentence imposed. Burrell expressed concern about the risk the defendant posed to the community given that Luce had been previously investigated by Stockton police in 2008 for possession of child pornography.

The Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigated this case.
