A Forestville man who pleaded guilty to receiving and possessing child pornography has been sentenced by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo to serve 20 years in prison and lifetime supervision upon his release, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Prosecutors said that between 2006 and 2009, 53-year-old Richard C. Miller produced child pornography by filming himself engaged in a sexual act with a minor.
Between January 2016 and March 2017, Miller and a co-defendant in the case, Joseph Harvey, of Forestville, exchanged images of child pornography and engaged in illicit discussions regarding child pornography and pedophilia, prosecutors said.
In addition, a search of the residence shared by Miller and Harvey revealed multiple electronic devices that contained child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Harvey was sentenced to serve 96 months in prison, prosecutors said.
