Mass. Child Porn Suspect Gets Almost 27-Year Term

NECN

A Massachusetts man who chatted online about kidnapping, raping, killing and eating children has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in prison.

Geoffrey Portway, of Worcester, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court to 26 years and eight months behind bars, just a few months shy of the 27 years prosecutors sought.

Authorities say they found a dungeon, homemade coffin, butchering kit and other tools in the basement of Portway’s home.

In a court filing, prosecutors say online chats recovered from Portway’s computer show he solicited people for help to kidnap a child with the intent of raping, killing and eating the child.

Portway’s attorney asked for a shorter sentence, saying his client did not touch or photograph any children.
