Sleepy Eye Man Child Porn 23 May 12

A 27-year-old Sleepy Eye man was sentenced this week after pleading guilty to 2 counts of possessing child pornography. Christopher Michael Gabler was sentenced to 120 days in jail on the felony charges, which is the time he has already served in custody. A prison sentence was stayed for the length of his 5 years of probation as well. Gabler was arrested late last year while living in Mankato after a Minneapolis police officer discovered that he was making child pornography available for download over the internet. He was initially charged with a total of 20 different felony counts, which were all dismissed with his guilty plea. Gabler will also now be required to complete a psychological evaluation, register as a predatory offender, have no contact with minors, and is not permitted access to the internet without prior approval.
