A Utah man has been sentenced to 90 days in jail on child pornography charges that officials say led to the arrest of a major child porn producer in Ohio.
The Utah Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force found nearly 1,300 pornographic images of children and 67 videos on the computer of 28-year-old Dino Prste, according to charges filed earlier this year in 3rd District Court.
The Salt Lake City man's case eventually led investigators to Ohio. Darin Casper, of Cleveland, was charged with more than 150 counts for molesting children and producing child porn in the home where his wife also ran a day care.
"Darin Casper's vile, unforgivable acts destroyed the innocence of countless young children," Cuyahoga County, Ohio, prosecutor Bill Mason said in a press release in September, after Casper pleaded guilty to the charges.
Casper was sentenced Oct. 30 to 24 years in prison.
