Octogenarian Former-Mayor Gets 2 Years for Child Porn!

The Anchorage Daily News reports on the octogenarian ex-mayor sentenced to prison for child porn.  This is story is baffling, the story:

"An 81-year-old Hydaburg (picture of community, above) man was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison for possessing child porn.  Robert Armour Sanderson, a former mayor of the Southeast town, was caught after he ordered two videos from an undercover postal inspector during a sting operation, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

A later search of Sanderson's home found 170 images of child pornography in his bedroom, the U.S. Attorney's office says. Sanderson, who had no criminal history prior to his arrest, was indicted in October. He pled guilty in April. His federal public defender says he is a community leader and has served as a guide and historian to the area for writers and anthropologists.

Hydaburg is on the southwest corner of Prince of Wales Island."
Why?  Absolutely pathetic.  I wish there was greater detail about Mr. Sanderson, I'd like to hear his explanation for Mr. Sanderson's interest and behavior.  Child pornography as I've said repeatedly on Bad Lawyer, is not a victimiless crime. 

Speaking of the baffling nature of this awful crime, Canoe (the best source for Canadian News) reports on the London, Ontario cop charged with child porn on his lap top computer.
