Man who kept child pornography ‘fairy house’ gets 9 months in jail

SEATTLE -- A man whose hoard of child pornography was discovered in a tree house in the Snoqualmie National Forest in 2016 has been sentenced to nine months in jail. reports 57-year-old Daniel Wood of Mill Creek pleaded guilty in November to possession of child pornography and attempted viewing of child pornography as part of a plea deal.

He will not be allowed to contact children without qualified supervision for 10 years. He also will be required to register as a sex offender and undergo sexual deviancy treatment.

The Mill Creek man kept images at the remote cabin, which authorities described as an elaborate tree house that resembled a fairy or gingerbread house.

A U.S. Department of Natural Resources employee found it in November 2016. DNA from the cabin was linked to Wood.

Authorities also seized thousands of images of child pornography from Wood's home.
