A North Carolina man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison in a child pornography case in which a victim says she was also raped almost daily for nearly three years.
Fifty-four-year-old Daniel Nicholas Buczkowski was convicted in January of 27 federal counts of transportation of child pornography. A repair shop owner discovered the picture collection.
A statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office on Thursday says Buczkowski of Fayetteville was sentenced on Wednesday.
During the sentencing hearing, the abuse victim testified that Buczkowski had shown her child pornography from age 7 to age 10.
Buczkowski has also pleaded guilty to three state charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sexual offense and taking indecent liberties with children.
