Associated Press

WARREN, OHIO: A 65-year-old northeast Ohio man with a flowing white beard who often told neighborhood children that he was Santa Claus has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for having child pornography on his computer.

A judge in Trumbull County sentenced William F. Brock Sr. of Niles on Thursday after he pleaded guilty to 35 child-pornography charges.

Prosecutors said evidence found on Brock’s computer included videos showing rapes being committed against an 8-year-old girl in nearby Austintown in 2012 by his girlfriend.

The girlfriend, 43-year-old Connie Ramirez, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in September for raping two children and having sexually explicit images on a cellphone.

A prosecutor said there no evidence that Brock had sexually assaulted children.

Brock declined to comment in court.
