York man gets 35 years in child pornography case

A York man will spend 35 years in a federal prison for producing child pornography and sexually exploiting a minor.

Thomas A. O’Connor, 46, was sentenced to 420 months in prison by Chief Judge Christopher C. Conner in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg.

O’Connor had pleaded guilty to production and receipt of child pornography for enticing a young boy to produce sexually explicit videos of himself online.

Agents said they also found thousands of images and videos depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct on computers in O’Connor’s home.

In addition, O’Connor confessed to sexually abusing a young child with special needs for several years.
