An Orleans County man has been sentenced in Burlington to 10 years in prison for his second criminal conviction for knowingly possessing child pornography. Daniel Blow, 41, of Charleston, received the mandatory minimum sentence from Judge Christina Reiss. He will get credit for about 18 months in prison while held in pre-trial detention. Reiss also told Blow, who grew up in the Burlington area, that he would be on supervised release for eight years after he is discharged from federal prison so he can be closely monitored. Blow’s first criminal conviction for possessing child porn was in Dec. 2003, in Ulster County, N.Y., south of Albany. Federal court records show Blow is not included on the Vermont Sex Offender Registry because the state limits who and how long people can be listed for sex offenses. Blow’s criminal record also includes convictions for domestic assault in 2004 and 2013, and for failure to register as a sex offender in 2007, court records show.
