Alaska psychologist sentenced in child porn case

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 51-year-old Anchorage child psychologist has been sentenced to four years in federal prison in a child pornography case.

Prosecutors say Russell Cherry also was sentenced Friday to 15 years of supervised release after he earlier pleaded guilty to one count of child pornography possession.

According to prosecutors, Cherry used a file-sharing network in summer 2017 to download videos and images showing child sexual exploitation.

Prosecutors say the FBI and Anchorage police executed a search warrant at Cherry’s home in August 2017 and found several images depicting child pornography on devices belonging to Cherry.

According to prosecutors, Cherry at the time admitted searching for such images and downloading them for his own curiosity.

Prosecutors say Cherry worked as a neuropsychologist treating children until his indictment in June.
