A Greenwood Village man has been sentenced to four years in prison in a child pornography case involving the most images and videos ever prosecuted in the 18th Judicial District.
Andrew Connis, 35, pleaded guilty on Thursday, Aug. 25 to one count of sexual exploitation of a child, a Class 3 felony. Under terms of a plea agreement, he was immediately sentenced to four years in the Colorado Department of Corrections. He must also register as a sex offender.
From July 2015 to October 2015, investigators from the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office built a case that Connis was downloading child pornography and making child pornography available for download through a peer-to-peer network. On Oct. 1, 2015, deputies executed a search warrant at the home where Connis lived. In all, investigators recovered more than 100,000 pictures and 300 videos depicting child pornography.
The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, through in-depth investigations and work done by our Internet Crimes Against Children team, will continue to aggressively investigate criminals who prey on our most innocent of victims.
