Ex-soldier accepts plea in child porn case

Posted: Monday, March 29, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A former Fort Wainwright soldier accepted a plea agreement in which he will spend three years in prison for possessing child pornography.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports 24-year-old Drew Wherry will also receive five years probation and be ordered to register as a sex offender at his formal sentencing on June 11.

Investigators say Wherry actively looked for and traded images of child pornography before his arrest last June.

Defense attorney Rex Butler says his client got a general discharge from the Army.
