Child porn convict skips sentencing
September 24, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Paul Ambler

Paul Michael Ambler, a 58-year-old former San Mateo resident caught in a child pornography sting early last year missed his sentencing hearing yesterday morning because he is in Arizona and cannot afford to fly back to California until October, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

Ambler was arrested on a day that nine other child porn suspects were also arrested in a joint operation headed by San Jose police, including three who resided in San Mateo. One of those suspects, however, later hanged himself at his home near downtown.

A search of Ambler’s home revealed he possessed images and videos of children between the ages of 6 and 15 engaged in various sex acts. The child pornography was obtained from as far away as England and numerous emails related to the trading and forwarding of child pornography were found as well, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

He pleaded no contest in July 2012 to felony possession of child pornography in exchange for doing no time in state prison.

The court took a bench warrant under submission and continued the case to Oct. 10 for receipt of the pre-sentence report and for imposition of sentence, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
