A 73-year-old Polk County man was sentenced to 30 years in prison Thursday for possessing child pornography.

Allen Robert Roth, of Lakeland, was initially arrested in October 2008 amid an investigation that found him in possession of images and videos containing child porn.

He was booked into the Polk County Jail and bonded out the following month on pretrial conditions that included no direct or indirect contact with children, no possession or use of computers or Internet access, no porn possession and warrantless searches/seizures by pretrial release or law enforcement.

In June 2010, deputies conducted a warrantless search of Roth's home and found computers connected to the Internet that contained porn. He was again arrested and charged with violation of pretrial conditions and remained in jail until his conviction.

"After only 18 minutes of deliberation on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, a jury of his peers found this suspect guilty," Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement.
