Elderly Georgetown man faces 28 years in prison for dealing child porn

An elderly Georgetown man faces a 28-year prison term after pleading guilty in Sussex County Superior Court to two counts of dealing child pornography.

The Delaware Attorney General's Office says 70-year-old David Pennington was part of a three-man child porn distribution ring.

He had three prior convictions for sex crimes involving child victims.

Pennington was arrested in January.

Two other men arrested at the time have since been charged with federal child pornography crimes.

Those charges are pending.
