SACRAMENTO, CA - A former Lincoln karate instructor is headed to prison for 20 years on child pornography charges.
The sentence handed down to Justin Graham, 31, was the maximum allowed by law. He pleaded guilty to charges last March.
According to federal court records, a joint FBI and Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children task force investigation found Graham was sharing child porn online. His computer contained thousands of such images and video of children being sexually exploited.
As disturbing, investigators also reported finding Graham had been taking videos of some of his karate students, including children, when they were changing clothes at his home, said Lauren Horwood, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of California.
Graham was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine. Upon release from prison, he must register as sex offender and he will be under lifetime supervised release.
