HAMMOND — A convicted child molester from La Porte, who called himself a “virtuous pedosexual,” will spend 15 years in federal prison after being convicted of transportation of pornography, according to federal prosecutors.

Michael Christianson, 52, was sentenced to 180 months after pleading guilty to three counts of transporting obscene materials, according to U.S. Attorney Clifford Johnson. U.S. District Judge Philip Simon also sentenced Christianson to two years of supervised release.
