Springs Man Sentenced To Prison After Spending Thousands On Child Porn

By  | 

A man from Colorado Springs will spend nearly five years in prison for spending thousands on child pornography.

Clifton Bennett, 56, was sentenced Monday. The U.S. Department of Justice announced the sentencing Wednesday afternoon.

Postal inspectors alerted authorities that someone from Colorado Springs was buying dozens of child porn videos. Authorities later determined it was Bennett.

Court records state that Bennett spent more than $4,000 on child porn between fall 2008 and spring 2011.

After a search warrant was executed at Bennett's home, investigators found evidence that Bennett was a member of the North American Man-Boy Love Association. Bennett was arrested after the warrant execution, and pled guilty in May of this year.

After Bennett serves his prison sentence, he will be supervised for 10 years. He'll also have to register as a sex offender.
