Former softball commish sentenced for child porn

Eastlake (AP) - A former youth softball league commissioner in northeast Ohio has been sentenced to 10 months in prison for possessing child pornography and inappropriately touching a 17-year-old girl.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald reports 46-year-old Scott Schinke was sentenced Monday. He's the former commissioner of the Eastlake Youth Softball League.

Schinke said in court he was "ashamed" of what he did and asked for probation, but judge Vincent Culotta called it "a failed attempt at remorse."

Schinke previously pleaded guilty to a felony count of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor, and a misdemeanor count of sexual imposition.

Prosecutors said he inappropriately touched a 17-year-old concession stand volunteer in 2010.

A search of his computer turned up 456 images of suspected child pornography.
