Former Boy Scout leader sentenced for child porn

A former Boy Scout assistant troop leader in Spokane was sentenced to 30 months in prison last week after he pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography.

David M. Armstrong, who was removed from the Boy Scouts after his arrest in September 2015, also has a long list of requirements he must follow after his release from prison, including getting prior approval for a job and living arrangements. He is barred from being in contact with minors, except for his teenage son.

The caregiver for Armstrong’s son, who is disabled, found several pornographic images on Armstrong’s computer when he was using it. Investigators found thousands of pornographic images of boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 14.
