Man sentenced to 7 years for receipt of child pornography

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Officials say a Tacoma man who pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography has been sentenced in U.S. District Court to more than seven years in prison. The News Tribune reports the Justice Department said Judge Benjamin H. Settle sentenced 37-year-old Brandon Culp on Tuesday, calling Culp a danger to the public. According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Culp previously served nearly five years in prison for trying to traffic a minor for sex. In 2019 a social media company flagged an account for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children because of images Culp shared of child sex abuse. Investigators said they found over 800 such images on his devices.
