An August guilty plea to a pair of child porn charges results in a 30 year prison sentence for a Granite City man.  36-year-old Jason E. Starko entered a guilty plea to two charges of Production of Child Pornography last August after being caught with digital images of a friend's five year old child.  Starko was arrested and has been held without bond for over a year.

The case began to surface when a female friend Stark was living with, but apparently was not romantically involved with, reported to the Granite City Police Department that she believed that the Starko had molested her two minor children.  After that, the digital camera was found with two videos involving the female friend's five year old child.  Stark was living with, but apparently not romantically involved with the woman.  Starko will also have to serve a 20 year term of supervised release, and pay nearly $1,500 in fines and special assessments.
