Pahoa man sentenced for child pornography

By 67AM KPUA News

A 57-year old Hawai`i Island man who admitted to producing pornographic images of himself and two children under the age of 10 has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

During Mondays sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Oki Mollway also ordered John Ridgely Tucker to register as a convicted sex offender and submit to probation-like court supervision for the rest of his life once he is released from prison.

Tucker was arrested last October after a Hawai`i Island phone directory was discovered on digital images of an adult man and two children that had been circulating on child pornography websites. Within hours of going public, callers identified the man as
Tucker, who operated a Pahoa bed and breakfast.

A federal prosecutor said the FBI searched Tuckers home and found the same images on his computer. They also located the children, who identified themselves and Tucker in the images.
