Man Who Stalked Amish Children Gets 11 Years For Child Porn

PITTSBURGH (AP) – A Pennsylvania man already convicted in state court for stalking Amish children near their school has been sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison for collecting hundreds of child pornography videos and images online.

Forty-year-old Lucas Klobetanz pleaded guilty to the porn distribution charge in February. He opted not to say anything in his own defense when a federal judge in Pittsburgh sentenced him Thursday.

The Ellwood City man was sentenced to jail in December 2015 after pleading guilty to trying to lure children into an outhouse at the Ligo Amish School in Wilmington Township. Klobetanz originally claimed he merely needed help picking up toilet paper he had dropped.

Klobetanz was also indicted on the federal charge in December 2015 and has been jailed ever since.
