WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man arrested with a statewide initiative targeting those who download or trade child pornography was sentenced to prison earlier this week.

David M. Wolters, 58, pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of child pornography, a Class 2 felony. McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham sentenced the man to four years in prison.

According to the criminal complaint, Wolters possessed computer images of young boys engaged in sex acts with men.

Wolters was arrested in December as part of Attorney General Lisa Madigan's "Operation Glass House" on eight counts of child pornography-related felonies. He pleaded to one and the rest were dropped with his guilty plea.

Once he's released, Wolters faces parole of three years or up to natural life and he must register as a sex offender.
