CONWAY, AR – A former foster parent and volunteer firefighter was sentenced to 4 years in jail for possession of child pornography.
Daniel Klosky was a foster parent of two children, ages 17 and 8, when he was arrested and charged with 38 counts of possession of child pornography in 2009. Given his time already served, Klosky could be up for parole as early as April.
“He has about 6 months time already, so he would be parole eligible in the not so distant future,” says John Wesley Hall, Klosky’s attorney.
Hall maintains his client’s innocence and says he will file an appeal in the next 30 days.
“Where the images were, they were not accessible to him. Half the files were in the cache files which no user except an IT specialist could ever find. The others were in the allocated space, which means and all the witnesses admitted these were inaccessible at the time the computer was viewed by police," says Hall.
The prosecution declined to discuss Monday’s sentencing because Klosky will be back in court in March to face rape charges stemming from an incident in 2009. The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office says the victim in that case was a teenage boy.
