Portsmouth man gets 9 years for child porn:

I originally posted about 44-year-old William Geister of Portsmouth, Virginia here. He was arrested for soliciting children on craigslist by posting ads that said such things as “Any cute teen girls want to get together now?” and “Looking for any teen girls that want to get together for some fun in the bedroom.” He got 5 years for that.

During the investigation police discovered over 2400 images of child porn on Geister’s computer that included pictures of children being bound and whipped. For that, he got 9 years.

Usually, with child solicitation like this, it means that this is probably not their first rodeo and they’ve probably molested children before. In my experience, which I will admit is through mostly anecdotal evidence, is that sentences for child porn possession are stiffer than actual sexual offenses with children. While both are equally reprehensible in my opinion the sentences for both need to be equally as harsh and both of these sentences are way too light.
