Mar. 10—A Longmont man accused of downloading sexually exploitative child abuse material was sentenced to probation Friday.

Miles William Wisner, 29, pleaded guilty in December to felony cybercrime with a sexual factual basis.

At a hearing Friday, attorneys agreed that Wisner’s lack of criminal history and other mitigating factors warranted a probationary sentence so Wisner could receive treatment.

Boulder District Judge Patrick Butler went with the recommendation of attorneys and a pre-sentence report and sentenced Wisner to five years of sex offender intensive supervised probation.

Wisner will have to register as a sex offender.

Butler said it was an “opportunity” for Wisner to show he could be a law-abiding citizen and comply with the terms of his probation.

Wisner did not comment at the hearing.

According to an arrest affidavit, Longmont police in January 2020 were forwarded three separate tips by Internet Crimes Against Children and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. All three tips concerned an IP address tracked to Wisner’s home downloading child pornography.

In February 2020, detectives served a search warrant at Wisner’s Longmont home where Wisner said he had lived alone for the past two or three years.

According to the affidavit, investigators discovered a “large amount” of child pornography saved on his desktop computer.

Wisner initially denied viewing child pornography, but admitted to downloading the images and visiting child pornography sites when confronted with the images stored on his desktop.

Wisner said he had been collecting child pornography for about half a year but denied doing it for sexual gratification.

Further investigation of the home found several other electronic storage devices that contained child pornography, including a naming system that catalogued the ages of the victims.
