FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A man who was arrested last year with child pornography will spend less than a year in jail, according to court records.

On Tuesday, 57-year-old Michael Wayne Martin was sentenced by a judge to 180 days in jail and two years of formal probation.

Martin was arrested in May 2021 after officials with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said they began to investigate Martin following a tip submitted to the Central Valley Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.

After serving a search warrant at Martin’s home, investigators said they found sexually explicit images of children.

Officials with the sheriff’s office originally said that thousands of DVDs containing child pornography were found at the home, but it was later clarified that the search had actually turned up a couple of images of children with their genitals exposed, and another image of a child engaging in oral sex with an adult.

The rest of the DVDS found at Martin’s home contained legal pornography featuring consenting adults.

Martin had originally entered a not guilty plea on child pornography possession charges, later changing it to no contest.
