Man gets seven years for having child porn

A Grand Junction man who had thousands of images of child pornography on his computer was sentenced Friday to seven years in federal prison and 10 years of supervised release, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Mike Morrow, 63, had pleaded guilty to one charge of possession of child pornography, while a charge of transportation of child pornography was dismissed.

According to an arrest affidavit, Morrow had 13,000 images of children engaged in sexual acts and told police he obtained the images over several years via computer from a man in the Netherlands.

Morrow was hired as a teacher’s aide at Grand Mesa Middle School but resigned three weeks later on the day he was arrested.

He also formerly worked as a sports department copy editor for The Daily Sentinel and, more recently, wrote sports columns for the Grand Junction Free Press.

The case was investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorneys’ Office.
