Ex-soldier convicted of having child porn

  • Follow Metro

A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel was convicted in federal court  Thursday on child pornography charges.

Reginald Lonnel Cray, 48, of Martinez,  faces between five and 20 years' imprisonment for receipt of child pornography and  as much as 10 years in prison for possession of it.

Prosecutors said Cray accessed photos and videos of abused children from an international Web site for three weeks during spring 2008.

Casting fool- I am on my

Casting fool- I am on my computer daily. I have been for years. I search for things, and people, daily.

I have yet to see one piece of child pornography on my computer.

Somebody ratted him out. And there are no "gimmes" in child porn. Once is all it takes.

Having said that, the FBI isn't that dumb. It wasn't one or two times. And you stretch the limits of reality if you think that a retired US Army Lt. Col. doesn't know about the illegalities of child porn. 3 weeks isn't "once".

His case was tried and proven in Federal Court, Casting Fool. If you want more info, contact the Federal Courthouse.

Willow Bailey, it is against Federal law to engage in child pornography in any way. I can't put it any plainer than that. Yes, looking at child porn is a Federal crime. There is nothing about child porn that is legal, and that's the way it should be.

Oh dear Lord! LOL I can't

Oh dear Lord! LOL

I can't help it, "freeradical". Thank you for confirming that your an armchair conspiracy "theorist".

I noticed that you didn't try to answer any of my allegations that you do not have first hand knowledge of what you speak. So are we to assume that you both work in a bank and as a federal law enforcement officer? What a hoot!

You go, Girl! Keep those conspiracies a rollin'!

... and try to not misquote people if you can manage it. I wrote:

"Frankly, it's none of our business. It's their country. Our law enforcement tells them what we've discovered, and it's up to their law enforcement to deal with it."

Other nation's LAW ENFORCEMENT _is_ their business and not the United States'. It doesn't matter what the crime is, we do not have any right to enter their country and deal with their crime problems.

It doesn't matter what the crime is, it's legally not our business. That's why our law enforcement goes after the creeps here who download that crap off of the Internet, order it via mail, or distribute it by hand.

BTW, my "moral vacuum" includes serving my country with honor, serving Christ for over 40 years, and doing my best to obey the law and live peaceably with others in this great land.

"corgimom", based on the article that I read, the one above these comments, there was not enough information to determine what actually happened other than he was arrested and convicted.

"I have yet to see one piece of child pornography on my computer." Lucky you, hope it keeps up. Be careful when you search using Google, Yahoo or Bing. According to you, if something untoward pops up, you did it on purpose and should be severely punished for doing so.

"3 weeks isn't 'once'" No, it isn't. It's 504 hours or 21 days. Are you saying that you have found a record somewhere that specifically stated that he was surfing porn continuously for 504 hours? No sleep or eating, going to work, going to the bathroom even?

Or is everyone assuming that he was continuously surfing for that time period? "corgimom" stated that "Once is all it takes." He may have done it once, twice, or dozens of times, all in one night for that matter. The article does not offer that information.

The article does not state what he actually did, only that he was arrested and convicted for it. Try to stick with the facts people.

This place is getting as crazy as the comments section at Fox News.

Y'all have fun. If you call fun stating unsupportable things about people that you've only met in this comment section at the Chronicle, and hoping that you can make their lives miserable by convincing others that your lies are true.

What a bunch of sad, silly people...

I believe that I'm done with your comments section, Augusta Chronicle. Like all of the other social widgets on the 'Net, childish people have ruined this one, too.

Remember, Folks. Two ears, one mouth. God left a message for us in there somewhere.

Tootles! :O)
