Josue Rivera Sentenced To Prison On Child Pornography Charge

imageThe artist Josue Rivera, who worked as Justiniano, was sentenced earlier today in a Connecticut courtroom to 10 years in prison on a possession of child pornography charge. The artist pleaded guilty in July to second-degree position of child pornography. He was arrested in 2010 after providing a funeral home with a flash drive that contained offending material; he was charged for that material and additional material found on a seized computer.

The artist may have his sentence suspended after serving three years. He will see ten years' probation upon his release.

His credit include comics from DC Comics and from Chaos! Comics.
