A Lancaster County man will serve up to 31 years in prison for two child pornography convictions, including one for a stash that police found just a week after he was found guilty at a trial.

Robert M. Dennis, 63, of Akron, was ordered to serve 12 to 31 years in prison at his sentencing last week.

Dennis was convicted in October of possessing child pornography for materials found on a computer tablet. The district attorney’s office said about a week after the trial, police became aware of an additional stash of child pornography Dennis was keeping at a Paradise Township storage locker.

Police filed additional charges for the printed photographs and other images stored on a computer, and Dennis eventually pleaded guilty.

Prosecutors said Dennis has two prior out-of-state convictions on sex abuse charges.
