Comments Off on Palm Springs Man Sentenced For Child Porn, Bestiality and Meth

INDIO, Calif. — A Palm Springs man who admitted child pornography and bestiality charges will spend 16 months in jail, an attorney confirmed today.

 

Joel Bradley Simpson, 36, pleaded guilty to a felony count of possessing child porn and a misdemeanor count of sodomy and was immediately sentenced to the 16-month term by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Victoria E. Cameron, Deputy District Attorney Brijida Rodarte said.

 Simpson, who had no prior criminal record, also pleaded guilty Friday to a separate misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance, which Rodarte said was methamphetamine.

 He was sentenced to 213 days in county jail on the drug conviction and will serve that term concurrently with his other sentence, the prosecutor said.

 Simpson was arrested June 16 at his home in the 1600 block of Via Entrada, after a tipster contacted police with child porn allegations, according to Palm Springs Police Department spokesman Rhonda Long.

 “A search warrant was served at Simpson’s residence, and he was found to be in possession of several disturbing video and photograph files of child pornography,” Long said earlier. “Simpson was also in possession of a video (in which he was) performing sex acts with an animal.”

 The animal was a dog, according to the criminal complaint, and the ages of the children depicted in the files stored on Simpson’s computer range from infancy to pre-teens, Long said.
