Morehead psychologist sentenced in child porn case

A Morehead psychologist who admitted downloading images of child pornography from the Internet must serve 151 months in federal prison, a judge ordered Monday.

Chad B. Stafford, 36, also will be under lifetime supervision by parole officials after prison and will have limits on his computer use and and interaction with children, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney James Zerhusen's office.

U.S. District Judge David Bunning sentenced Stafford Monday.

Bunning commented that Stafford's was the most bizarre child-pornography case he'd seen, citing a nude Barbie doll found in Stafford's hotel room at one point with its arms, legs and neck tied, and the fact he downloaded pictures of nude mannequins, according to the news release.

Stafford was a counselor in Menifee County for children in 1st through 12th grades, according to a news release.

Stafford's attorney argued there had never been a complaint about him having any inappropriate contact with children through his work.
