Man uses credit card to buy child porn

BALLSTON SPA - Frank Ferris, 53, of Ballston Spa, pleaded guilty last fall to a felony charge of possession of child pornography, which he bought with his credit card, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He was sentenced last week to 30 months in federal prison.

The guilty plea came after he was found to have used the card May 18 to pay $79.99 to access a child pornography website advertising its "pedophilia" content, officials said. He downloaded a number of images between 2008 and 2009 and was arrested after the FBI searched his former home in Saratoga.

Ferris will follow his 30 month sentence with 25 years on parole. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
