A Cottonwood man will serve more than 6 years in federal prison and then spend the rest of his life on supervised release for receiving child pornography.
Law Enforcement agents served a search warrant at the home of 40-year-old Larry Steven Occhipinti in May of 2014, during which they uncovered hundreds of deleted images of child pornography on Occhipinti’s computer and compact disks containing more than a dozen videos of child.
At a sentencing hearing Thursday, Occhipinti claimed that he had never hurt a child. United States District Judge Troy L. Nunley disagreed, noting that by viewing such images of child pornography, Occhipinti was contributing to the market for producers of these images. “To say that you’ve never hurt anyone, you need to understand . . . that you have,” Judge Nunley said.
Occhipinti is scheduled to self-surrender to begin serving his sentence on November 3, 2015.
