Flagstaff man gets 340 years for child sex crimes

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A 45-year-old Flagstaff man faces 340 years in prison after being sentenced in a child-sex case that included voyeurism, surreptitious videotaping and extensive downloading of child pornography.
   
David Greenberg was sentenced Wednesday in Coconino County Superior Court to 17 years in prison on each of 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
   
State law requires that the terms be served consecutively, so the sentences add up to 340 years.
   
According to the Arizona Daily Sun (http://bit.ly/10O3p1P ), Judge Cathleen Brown Nichols said Greenberg's actions caused extreme harm to the victims and that she doubted Greenberg's expressions of remorse.
   
Defense attorney David Bednar argued that the sentencing violated his client's constitutional protection against cruel and unusual punishment.
   
However, Nichols ruled that it didn't because Greenberg was sentenced on multiple counts.
