Former GR Foster Parent Sentenced For Child Porn

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - A former licensed counselor and foster parent to 29 children was sentenced today to 30 years in federal prison.

48-year old Jeffrey Marchione of Grand Rapids had pled guilty to owning and distributing more than 44,000 images and videos of child pornography.

U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker said the collection is the largest collection of child pornography he has ever seen in a single case.

Marchione was arrested in August of 2012 after a F.B.I. investigation found Marchione having online discussions about having sexual contact with young boys.

He will also be sentenced later this month on a state charge of having oral sex with a teenage boy.
