SYRACUSE — An upstate New York man convicted of transporting child pornography has been sentenced to an additional 1½ years for lying about his finances while seeking a court-appointed attorney to defend him.
The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that Joseph Jenkins was sentenced Friday in Syracuse to serve 18 more months in prison for perjury.
Federal authorities say the 46-year-old Geneva man didn’t disclose more than $200,000 in investment accounts, as well as boats and recreational vehicles he owned, in financial statements to a federal court.
Prosecutors say he requested a court-appointed lawyer in a 2011 prosecution for possession and transport of child pornography.
Jenkins was sentenced to more than 18 years in prison for his conviction last year. He was also fined $40,000 and ordered to pay restitution to victims.
