Woodland man sentenced for receiving child porn

WOODLAND - United Ststes Attorney Benjamin Wagner announced that U.S. District Judge Frank Damrell, Jr. sentenced Christopher Tomsett, 44, of Woodland, to five years in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release, for receiving child pornography. After his release from prison, Tomsett will be required to register as a sex offender.

According to court documents, Tomsett came to the attention of law enforcement officials in March of 2010 when agents conducting peer-to-peer file sharing investigations noticed his computer as one that had a large number of child pornography files. When agents executed a search warrant on Tomsett’s house in May 2010, Tomsett admitted that he had downloaded images of child pornography and had been doing so for approximately one year.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Carolyn Delaney prosecuted the case.
