A Turlock man was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison for receiving more than 600 images of child pornography in six weeks last year, according to the U.S. attorney's office.
Charles Albert Risley, 54, downloaded images depicting prepubescent minors, and several were violent, sadistic or masochistic in nature.
Upon his release, Risley will live out the rest of his life on supervised release, during which he will be required to register as a sex offender and his access to computers, minors and the Internet will be restricted.
According to court documents, Risley had spent six years in prison for a 1993 conviction of committing lewd acts with a child younger than 14. He was convicted in 2004 in Stanislaus County for possession of child pornography.
