24 year old Roddell Durbin, Jr., appeared Thursday before a St. Joseph County Superior Court judge and was sentenced to 10 years for Possession of Child Pornography. Three (3) of those years are to be executed in the Indiana Department of Correction, with seven (7) years of the sentence suspended. He was also sentenced to 2 years reporting probation upon his release from the DOC, when he will also be required to register as a sex offender. Mr. Durbin previously pled guilty by agreement to all four counts with which he was charged in September 2017. Of these four counts, he was charged with three counts of Possession of Child Pornography, each a Level 5 Felony, and one count of Possession of Child Pornography, a Level 6 Felony. These charges were filed in connection with a St. Joseph County Cyber Crimes Unit investigation stemming from a cybertip report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) regarding a DropBox account.
