ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A man from St. Augustine will spend 15 years in prison for mailing child pornography.

According to the Department of Justice, 67-year-old Charles L. Gorish mailed about 600 images of child porn and videos to someone in Ontario, Canada.

Officials said law enforcement officers in Canada obtained the package that Gorish sent to the other person.

The DOJ said Gorish wrote a false name on the package before he sent it in the mail through FedEx.

Officers in Canada contacted the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office and other officials saying they had the package.

Gorish was arrested following an interview and a search warrant on his home in St. Augustine in September 2012.

The DOJ said Gorish pleaded guilty in October.

Officials said Gorish was also found guilty of three counts of lewd and lascivious conduct on a minor child in February 1992.

15 YEARS!!! Why is this not a death penalty case and Im not even kidding??? This guy should be facing 15 DAYS before his public stoning(or you can put any medieval torture here in its place). If anyone has a weak stomach I will be glad to execute ANY and ALL child pornography or child harming by parents cases for FREE(its out there Cory\Jax!!! I promise too fulfill my duties for only the price of equiptment used to fulfill them!). I am a squeemsih guy that doesnt like blood too, but when it comes to these inhuman stains it would not be a big deal to take thier lives like they have taken the souls of thier victims and do it everytime they propogate the disgusting trash to the other stains that enjoy this stuff. What the HE11 is WRONG WITH THESE THINGS that DO THIS??? I simply dont get it. What could be more disgusting and sinister than this? Nothing that I can think of... so it should be punished accordingly.
