A Salt Lake City businessman will serve as many as 15 years in prison following his conviction in August on 20 felony child pornography counts.
D. Chris Robertson, 62, was sentenced Wednesday to a term of one to 15 years of prison time for each count. Sentencing judge Terry Christiansen ordered that the sentences run concurrently.
Robertson was the owner and manager of Sabol & Rice, an HVAC equipment supplier, according to the Utah Attorney General's Office. Members of the Utah Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) seized his computers in April 2009, finding 24,477 images and 386 videos containing child pornography. Robertson's employees reported him to law enforcement because they were disturbed that he was openly viewing child pornography on his computer, according to state prosecutors.
