Youth pastor Matthew Nichols sentenced

Youth pastor Matthew Nichols, 62, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for distribution of child pornography. Nichols worked for Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Los Alamos, New Mexico. There is no mention of the pedopastor’s sentencing on the website.

Nichols is evil. He deserves every minute of his long prison sentence.

The case began with a tip to the New Mexico Attorney General's Office that an Internet address later traced to Nichols was being used to distribute child porn. Federal agents served search warrants on the church and Nichols home in December 2009 and reported finding 1,465 images and 186 videos of known child pornography identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Good riddance.
