Man sentenced to year in prison in child pornography case


RUTLAND, Vermont — A Vermont man has been sentenced to a year in prison after being convicted of possessing child pornography.

Court records say police executed a search warrant at Grant Klein's home in Brattleboro after a computer there was identified as accessing and downloading child pornography.

Prosecutors said the 33-year-old Klein admitted that he had destroyed the hard drive to his desktop computer to avoid detection by law enforcement. An examination of his cellphone showed child pornography images.

Klein was sentenced Monday in federal court in Rutland.
