A Westmoreland County man deserves “every day” of a three-year, two-month sentence for collecting child pornography and threatening a postal inspector who investigated him, a federal judge said Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge David Cercone sentenced Todd Markley, 49, of Murrysville to 10 years of probation and fined him $5,000.
Markley pleaded guilty in February to buying child pornography through the mail and sending the postal inspector an email on May 31, 2012, claiming that he had placed a $3,000 bounty on her and had instructed a group of men “to make your death as painful, drawn out and humiliating as possible.”
