Grand Rapids man sentenced for attempting to receive child porn

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Grand Rapids man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for attempting to receive child pornography.

54-year-old Jack Groenendal was convicted by a jury back in October.

Evidence showed he went online looking for child porn images while on supervised release for a prior child pornography conviction.

Groenendal will serve his federal prison term--he will then be on another supervised release for 8 years, and will remain on the sex offender registry.
