U.S. Doctor Jailed for Pornography

ATLANTA -- A U.S. doctor who authorities said had sex with underage boys in Russia has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for downloading child pornography and taking sexually explicit pictures of boys.

Gregory Kapordelis, 46, was convicted in May of six counts of downloading child pornography and using boys to produce pornographic pictures from 2001 to 2004. He was acquitted of a seventh charge of making a video of himself having sex with a person under 18.

U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell on Tuesday also sentenced Kapordelis to six years of supervised probation and fined him $20,500.

Kapordelis was originally arrested at a New York airport in 2004 and charged with traveling to Russia to have sex with boys. While those charges were later dropped, prosecutors filed a new round of charges after authorities said they found pornographic photos during a search of his home after the arrest.
