WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A Morrow man was sentenced to five years probation, and has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography Tuesday afternoon.

Benny Gabbard, 76, pled guilty to 19 counts of Pandering Obscenity Involving a Minor.

On July 12, 2014 the Warren County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant on Gabbard's residence. During the search, detectives found a thumb drive which contained images of child pornography.

Gabbard will be designated as a Tier II Sexual Offender, and will be required to register with the sheriff's office every 180 days.
