A Thunder Bay man is going to jail after being convicted on Child Pornography related charges.

51 year old John David Cornell plead guilty to possession and making available child pornography and sexual interference. 

Justice Newton sentenced him to two years less a day and three years probation and he's now on the sex offender registry for the rest of his life. 

Cornell's lawyer, David Bruzzese, says his client has been in specialized counselling for almost two years and a risk assessment has him as a very, very low risk to re-offend.
