Anchorage man sentenced for possessing, creating child pornography; federal sentence pending


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Anchorage man convicted of sexual abuse of a minor and possession of child pornography has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

The Alaska Dispatch News ( reports 45-year-old Kevin Dale Callander was sentenced Friday in state court to 24 years with 12 suspended.

He will be sentenced Dec. 22 in federal court for four counts stemming from sexually exploitive recordings made while he was on vacation — two for making child pornography and two for transporting illegal materials.

Assistant Attorney General Adam Alexander says Callander initially was investigated for possession of child pornography but detectives found out he had filmed abuse of girls.

The state is seeking restoration from Callander for two classes of victims, the local girls and the children depicted in the child pornography Callander possessed.
