Second Cassidy Twin Sentenced To 20 Years

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - Lexington Police called it one of the worst child porn cases they'd ever investigated. On Friday, one of the two twins accused in a massive child porn investigation was sentenced to 20 years in prison. 

79-year-old Jerry Cassidy pleaded guilty back in July to charges dating all the way back to the 1970s, including child porn possession, sodomy and sexual abuse.

Police recovered  hundreds of pictures of young boys tied up, naked and kissing each other. They also found journals detailing the abuse. The Cassidy brothers lived a double life for years, singing at Bryan Station Baptist church and even singing at nursing homes. 

Police say Jerry and his brother were once Boy Scout Leaders and, at one point, abused some of the boys in their care. His brother Jack was recently sentenced to 20 years in prison for the same charges. 

Jerry must also register as a sex offender.
