An Oil City man has been sentenced to county jail time for using his neighbor’s wireless Internet access to download child pornography.

Police said they had initially been investigating the neighbor until evidence led them to 23 year-old Jordon Astrove.  In Venango County Court proceedings in November, Astrove entered guilty pleas to ten charges.

On Tuesday, Astrove was sentenced to 11-a-half months to two years in the Venango County Jail and seven years probation.  He will be required to register as a sex offender and to enter a sex offender treatment program.

Astrove has been given credit for about nine-and-a-half months already served since his arrest last June, and was placed on house arrest and was granted work release status.
