SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — A U.S. District Judge in San Francisco sentenced a Hayward man to more than 10 years in prison for receiving child pornography and traveling with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, the acting
United States Attorney said Tuesday.

Craig Patrick Burt, 60, pleaded guilty in June. He admitted to receiving images of young girls from 10 to 15 years old engaged in sexually explicit conduct via email, according to United States Attorney Brian Stretch.

Burt also admitted to traveling to the Philippines in January with the intent to engage in sexual conduct with underage girls.

Online chat messages revealed the specific sexual acts he intended to perform on the underage girls, Stretch said.

He was arrested at San Francisco International Airport while trying to reenter the United States in February, according to Stretch.

Burt’s sentence also includes a five-year period of supervised release, Stretch said.
