A 40 year old magician has been sentenced to 5 years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of child porn.

Daniel Kamenicky, otherwise known as Dan the Magic Man, pleaded guilty earlier this year to one count each of making and possessing child pornography. 

Back in August of last year dozens of photos and videos were found that had been taken of young children were inadvertently uploaded to Flickr. He secretly recorded dozens of girls between the ages of 8 and 10 while working as an educational assistant and while performing magic shows.

Court heard he would distract the girls and then take cellphone pictures or videos from underneath their dresses. Police also found videos and pictures he had downloaded from the internet depicting children being sexually abused by adults.
