Convicted offender facing new sex crime charges

“25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”………Sarah Tofte

A Spokane man already serving time for possessing child pornography has been sentenced to an additional 20 years more in prison for producing child pornography.

In 2004 Terry Griffith, 38, was arrested after an investigation uncovered thousands of pictures and videos depicting child pornography at his home. He later pled guilty to possessing child pornography and was sentenced to 57 months in prison and was transferred to Taft Prison in California.

After he was sent to prison, Griffith, reportedly wrote letters to a girl that “indicated a possible physical relationship between Griffith” and the girl, who was 15-years-old at the time. Additionally he asked the teen to send nude videos of her to him in prison.

An investigation was launched and authorities contacted the girl who later admitted that Griffith, who had babysat the girl at his home since she was 10-years-old, had taken nude photos of her which he had downloaded to his computer and that he had been sexually abusing her since she was 10.
