Child Porn Brings 8-Year Sentence

A registered sex offender was sentenced to eight years in prison today for distributing child pornography. John Patrick McClaren, 46, of Hayden Lake, is to be on probation for 15 years after his release. The Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began investigating McClaren in December 2009 after a Shoshone County sheriff's deputy learned his Internet Protocol address was involved in the distribution of child pornography online. Investigators seized a laptop computer and two hard drives from his home in the 3100 block of East Cambridge Drive on Jan. 27, 2010, that contained at least 160 sexually explicit images of minors/Meghann Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels.
