The Canyon County Prosecutor's Office says Sean Crawford, 36, of Nampa was sentenced to seven years in prison for four counts of sexual exploitation of a child Monday.

Nampa police arrested Crawford in February after an investigation discovered he had images and videos of children, some and young as three or four years old, engaging in sexual acts with adults. Police say he admitted to detectives that the pornography was his and that he used it for his own sexual gratification.

“Although he wasn’t a physical perpetrator in this case, the defendant no doubt contributed to the ongoing sexual abuse of innocent children by downloading and viewing these images and videos of child pornography,” said Deputy Prosecutor Erica Kallin in a press release.

Crawford will be eligible for probation after one year. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
