50 year sentence for man convicted of child porn charge


A 47-year-old man already serving a 16-year state sentence for abuse of a minor was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for videotaping himself sexually assaulting children, authorities said today.

The sentence for Donald Anderson, formerly of south suburban Park Forest and west suburban Addison, was handed down Wednesday, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office.

The judge gave him the maximum terms of 30 years for producing child pornography and 20 years for receiving child pornography, which she imposed consecutively to each other, as well as with the state sentence. The judge ordered them to be served consecutively to prevent Anderson from ever committing any similar crimes, according to the statement.

The charges were brought in 2009 after Anderson was convicted and sentenced in state court, and he pleaded guilty to the federal charges in April of this year.
