BELMONT — A Nunda man who was sentenced last month in Livingston County to 10 years in prison for possession of a sexual performance by a child got a six-month jail sentence Thursday in Allegany County Court.
Herman J. Hassell, 48, of Massachusetts Street, was also sentenced by Judge Terrence Parker to pay a surcharge and DNA fees. He pleaded guilty Thursday to endangering the welfare of a child.
A grand jury indicted Hassell Oct. 26 for possession of sexual performance by a child, promoting sexual performance by a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
On May 8, in Hume, he possessed a cell phone video of a sex act between a 12-year-old and 40-year-old. Hassell then forwarded photographs to another person.
