RAPID CITY, S.D. — A Rapid City man has been sentenced to 11 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography.
Forty-one-year-old Michael John Vinton admitted to having hundreds of photos and some videos of child pornography on his computer last year. The Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/2u8EAYE ) says investigators from South Dakota’s Crimes Against Children Task Force received the images from Vinton through peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.
Vinton was on parole at the time for similar charges. He was convicted in 2012 of possessing, manufacturing or distributing child pornography in Pennington County.
