Burgaw man sentenced to federal prison for child pornography

A federal judge in Raleigh sentenced a Burgaw man to 60 years in federal prison for the manufacturing of child pornography. Dennis Johnston pled guilty to two counts in what the judge called the most horrific case of this type he had ever seen. A joint investigation by the Pender County Sheriff's Office and the FBI revealed evidence of sexual abuse and exploitation by Johnston over a period of six years. Johnston's victims ranged in age from five years to early teens.
