Parole violation lands Treasure Valley man convicted of child porn back in prison

June 12, 2014 

Robert Wesley Henry III, who once lived in Meridian and Nampa, was arrested in March in Seattle. He was taken into custody amid allegations he had used methamphetamine and marijuana, because he was discharged from a treatment program due to rule violations and for refusing to answer questions during a court-ordered polygraph examination.

In federal court in Boise on Tuesday, Henry admitted the violations. Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill sentenced him to five months in prison and extended his parole for another 10 years, the original length of his supervised release.

Henry was sentenced in July 2011 to 18 months in prison following a conviction for possessing sexually explicit images of minors. He was released in December 2012.

Henry had originally faced up to 10 years in prison and could have been sentenced to the remainder of that term for the violations.

Since his release, Henry had not been accused of any crimes involving the exploitation of children.
