A Northern Idaho man will be an octogenarian by the time he completes his sentence for possessing sexually explicit images of minors, according to a press release issued by the office of U.S. Attorney Wendy Olsen.
Loren Hall, 70, was sentenced to five years, 10 months in prison, as well as an additional five years of supervised release for the crime. He has also been ordered by U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge to pay $5,000 in restitution and a $100 assessment fee.
According to a plea agreement, Hall was arrested by a police officer with the Internet Crimes Task Force Against Children in June 2012. A forensic examination of his computer revealed Hall had at least 50 films depicting explicit sexual conduct with minors from across the country. Hall had also entered search terms into his web browser including "underage," "pre-teen," "kiddy" and "man boy love."
