Lodi man sentenced for distributing child porn

Lodi man sentenced for distributing child porn

United States Attorney Benjamin Wagner announced that Duke Nottingham, 61, of Lodi, was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge John Mendez to nine years in prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised released. Nottingham was found guilty by a jury on September 16, 2010 and has been in custody since that date. As part of his sentence, Nottingham was ordered to pay restitution of $7,500 to two of the minors whose images he possessed, and to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.

According to court documents and evidence introduced at trial, Nottingham came to the attention of an undercover FBI agent in New York in July of 2009 when he observed a computer user, later identified as Nottingham, in Internet chat rooms associated with the sexual abuse of children. Through a file-sharing program, Nottingham allowed the undercover agent to access and download images from his computer.

9/11 survivor reacts to Bin Laden death

STOCKTON, CA - A Lodi man who was in one of the World Trade Center towers during the attacks of 9/11 said Monday he feels safer with the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Corey Daniel was in the 2nd tower when the 1st was hit by a plane.  As he ran from that building, he turned and watched the 1st tower crumble.

"It brings a little bit of closure.  It's surreal to be a part of that.  It made me feel safer for my family," said Daniel.

Daniel was in New York at the time going through training for a financial advice company.  Being in one of the towers when the attack began, is still something he thinks about.

"It was a life changing event.  Thanks to God's good graces, I'm living nine and a half years later.  On the other side, he's been taken out; something I'm grateful to our military for," said Daniel.
