Niles neighborhood 'Santa' sentenced for child pornography

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Niles man who wanted neighborhood children to think of him as Santa Claus, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for possessing child pornography.

William Brock Sr. was sentenced in Trumbull County Court on Thursday immediately pleading guilty to 35 counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

Brock was arrested in July during a raid of his home at 832 Mason Street when state and federal officials combed his home for evidence in a child pornography investigation.

At the time of his arrest, neighbors described Brock as a nice guy, who would often talk to the children on his street and call himself "Jolly Old Saint Nick."
