A 61 year-old eastern Carolina man is headed to prison for fifteen and a half years for possession of child pornography.
Eric Lee Spiwak of Newport, Carteret County was sentenced in federal court Wednesday.
Spiwak plead guilty last October to carrying on sexually explicit conversations over the internet with a Guilford County sheriff's detective posing as a 14 year-old girl. He traveled from Newport to Greensboro with the intent to engage in illegal sexual conduct
with the person he thought was a minor. Spiwak was arrested when he arrived at the agreed upon place.
A search of his residence found several zipdrive computer discs containing child pornography. Forensic analysis of the discs revealed 460 images of either child pornography or child erotica.
