Craig Police Department reacts to child porn case conclusion

Tuesday marked the conclusion of one of the worst child pornography cases in Craig history when Christopher Genova was sentenced in Moffat County District Court. Michael O’Hara, chief judge of the 14th Judicial District, handed down the sentence in accordance with a plea agreement between Genova and the 14th Judicial District Attorney’s Office that stipulated a maximum sentence of 12 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections for possession of sexually exploitative material, a Class 3 felony, and possession of child pornography, a Class 4 felony. Genova also received a concurrent sentence of probation for 10 years to life for solicitation to commit sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, a Class 4 felony. On Wednesday, Craig Police Department officers close to the investigation discussed how heavily the case, which began in December 2011, weighed on the department.
