Wichita man pleads guilty to child pornography charges

March 18, 2011


— A 47-year-old Wichita man is scheduled to be sentenced in June after pleading guilty to distributing child pornography.

The Wichita Eagle reports that prosecutors will recommend a sentence of 14 1/2 years in prison for Elliott L. Bennett. Sentencing is June 2.

Investigators said an FBI agent in New York who was investigating child porn last fall followed an electronic trail to Bennett's home in Wichita.

They said they found an external hard drive containing the pornography images buried in a tub of ashes next to a fireplace in his home.
