Local sex offender faces 15 years in prison for mailing child pornography
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.
