Rocklin man sentenced for possessing child pornography

A Rocklin man was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for possessing child pornography.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence K. Karlton also sentenced John Patrick Frost, 28, to a lifetime of supervised release following his prison term, according to a federal Department of Justice news release.

Frost pleaded guilty in October to one count of possession of child pornography. According to court documents, on March 12, 2009, a photo-sharing website reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Cybertipline that a user had posted child pornography to its page. Further investigation led to a Placer County residence where Frost spent time.

According to the plea agreement, between March 1 and Aug. 9, 2009, Frost knowingly possessed images of child pornography. Authorities said Frost has two convictions in Placer County, in 2003 and 2008, for possession of child pornography.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crimes Task Force, and the Justice Department's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section High Technology Investigative Unit.
