Man gets 10 years in prison for child pornography tied to charged sexual assaults of 15-year-old
A Fitchburg man who admitted he took nude photos of a 15-year-old girl and sent them to others interested in sex with the girl was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison.
John Gilbert, 47, fought back tears as he told U.S. District Judge James Peterson that he was sorry for what he did and for the grief that it caused his family and friends.
“I’d like to state I was wrong,” he said. “I was wrong for the actions that brought me in front of this court.”
Around 15 years ago, beautiful crosses appeared on Memorial Day. The white wooden crosses listed soldier’s names who were killed in the line of duty and the war they fought. They lined North and East Main Streets and each one had a small American flag.
