8 1/2 years meted in child porn case

ASHLAND — A Flatwoods man was sentenced Tuesday to 81⁄2 years in federal prison for receiving child pornography images through the mail.

U.S. District Judge David L. Bunning sentenced 52-year old Charles Frank Bachor to 102 months for receipt of child pornography.

Bachor pleaded guilty to the charge in June. In so doing, he admitted he ordered two videos of child pornography from an undercover agent with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Bachor emailed the agent in September 2010 in response to an online advertisement for “taboo” videos, according to court records. About two months later, he mailed an order form for two videos, and payment in the form of a money order.

On the order form, Bachor hand-wrote the titles of the two videos he wanted. Both featured 8-year-olds engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

On Dec. 8, 2010, a postal inspector delivered the videos to Bachor’s home, waited approximately 10 minutes, and then entered the residence to execute a search warrant.

According to his plea agreement, Bachor had already viewed one video and started watching the second one when agents entered his home. He was immediately arrested.

Agents conducted a forensics examination of Bachor’s home computer and discovered more than 1,500 additional images of child pornography.

Under federal law, Bachor must serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence and will have to register as a sex offender for life.

In addition to the prison term, Bunning sentenced Bachor to 10 years of supervised release.
