Child porn defendant could get 291 years

STANARDSVILLE (AP) A jury has recommended nearly 300 years in prison for a Virginia man convicted of dozens of child pornography-related charges.

Christopher Mark Garrison, 48, was convicted of 43 counts in all July 25, including soliciting a minor and producing, distributing and possessing child porn, The Daily Progress reported. He was arrested last July after the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office forwarded a tip to Greene County authorities.

The jury recommended a 291-year sentence, which a judge may not exceed. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 30.

The newspaper did not include comment from Garrison or a representative.
