NYC man gets prison for possessing thousands of child pornography images


NEW YORK — A Queens man who possessed thousands of images of child pornography will spend two to six years in prison.

District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced the sentence Tuesday for Ernest Hernandez of Sunnyside.

Authorities say the 29-year-old admitted he'd been looking at child pornography since he was 17.

Investigators found about 3,000 images and 600 videos on his computer and storage devices.

He pleaded guilty in March to promoting a sexual performance of a child.
