A Montgomery Township man who had more than 700 videos and more than 150 images of child pornography on his phone is headed to state prison for 1 ½ to 3 years for disseminating the material online, according to The Mercury.

David W. Shull, 44, of the 100 block of Stafford Circle, was sentenced Friday by Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Virgil B. Walker in connection with the 2021 incidents that occurred in Upper Moreland Township, per the report. 

Shull will have to register as sex offender for 25 years, as required by law under Pennsylvania’s former Megan’s Law, now called the Sexual Offender Registration and Notification Act, according to the article. 

Shull will need special placement at a prison for medical purposes, according to the report.

Shull was nabbed by law enforcement working undercover for the Pennsylvania State Police Southeast Computer Crime Task Force after a trooper found child pornography depicting a 3- to 6-year-old female engaged in a sexual act with an adult male on a file-sharing network on April 8, 2021, according to The Mercury. 

Police also downloaded “contraband digital files” from the computer user on the file-sharing plartform, per the report.

Investigators traced the IP address to Shull’s then-Upper Moreland apartment on the 2500 block of Maryland Road in the Willow Grove section of the township. A search warrant was conducted May 13, 2021, where Shull admitted to downloading child pornography multiple times on his Samsung Galaxy, per the report.
