16 & Pregnant: Lori Wickelhaus sentenced to 6.5 years on child porn charges

After pleading guilty to child porn charges in a Campbell County, Kentucky court hearing, earlier today, former 16 & Pregnant mom, and Northern Kentucky native was sentenced to six and a half years in prison along with mental health counseling.

According to Starcasm, Lori, 29, had been scheduled to be sentenced on June 29 after having entered a plea of Not Guilty on May 10. That date came and went without a hearing but as she was booked an hour later for contempt of court, we can assume she failed to appear.

16 & Pregnant: Tearful Mugshot

In her most recent mugshot for the contempt of court arrest, she appears to have been crying, with a sullen expression and eyeliner streaks down her face.

Neither the court of jail confirmed the reason for the contempt of court charge, the jail clerk informed the US Sun that she could have been charged for missing her court date, or otherwise she may have shown disrespect to the court.

16 & Pregnant: Original arrest Report

Though Lori was ultimately charged with 20 felony counts relating to child pornography it is unclear how many she ended up pleading guilty to.

The police report, obtained by Starcasm from her August 24 arrest said, “the Campbell County Police Department received a Cybertip from the Kentucky State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (KSP ICAC) that was submitted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). The Cybertip was created when a unknown subject uploaded images that depict child p*rnography to a Dropbox account.”

The report also states that the offense occurred on September 23 of 2019 and that an iPhone laptop, computer, and USB thumb drive were confiscated.
