Man sentenced to 90 days on child porn charges

John Arthur Murray was convicted of 36 charges of possessing images

Posted

A Parker man has been sentenced to 90 days in prison and five years of sex offender intensive supervised probation for possessing child pornography, according to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

John Arthur Murray, 36, was found guilty May 10 of amassing more than 400 “images of interest,” including 35 images depicting children previously identified as being victims of child pornography by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, according to the 18th Judicial District.

Murray was found guilty of 35 counts of sexual exploitation of a child/possession of materials, a Class 5 felony, and one count of sexual exploitation of a child/possession of 20-plus items, a Class 4 felony. He was convicted by a Douglas County jury.

Murray, a father of two young girls, had collected the images between September 2009 to November 2017. His now-ex-wife discovered the images while trying to download family photos from his computer's hard drive. She contacted Parker police, who, in conjunction with Arapahoe County Computer Crime Lab, conducted the investigation.

The images were of girls between the ages of 13-15.
