Vacaville man convicted of possession of child pornography

By From page A8 | April 30, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A jury found a Vacaville man guilty Tuesday after a two-day trial of felony possession of child pornography.

After the verdict, Mark A. Lerret, 53, of Vacaville, was ordered into custody. He will remain locked up until he is sentenced May 28. Judge Robert Bowers also revoked Lerret’s bail that he had posted after his arrest in February 2012.

Lerret faces up to a year in prison and will have to register as a sex offender. If he is found guilty again of possessing child porn, he could be sentenced to up to six years in prison.

    Great job Vacaville PD. Persons that watch child porn are more likely to go to the next step: violating an actual child.

    Really tough sentence. I am sure it will act as a deterrent.
