A former San Mateo child care provider found downloading child pornography last year was sentenced to probation and will have to register as a sex offender for life, San Mateo County prosecutors said today. Nicholas McKinley, 32, was sentenced Friday by San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Jonathan Karesh to three years’ probation and one year in jail, but already has 384 days credit for time served, according to the district attorney’s office.

McKinley will have to register as a sex offender for life and will have to complete a sex offender management treatment course and is restricted him from associating with minors without his probation officer’s consent, must stay 100 yards from where children congregate, cannot live in a house with children and cannot possess any pornography, prosecutors said.

McKinley, a former child care provider with La Creche Child Development Center, was arrested after Santa Barbara County prosecutors alerted San Mateo police that they had located someone there downloading child pornography via the online sharing service Shareaza, San Mateo County prosecutors said.

Detectives searched his apartment and found hundreds of child pornography images on his computer. He was arrested on Nov. 20. McKinley pleaded no contest in May to felony charges of possession of child pornography on the condition that he would not receive a state prison sentence, prosecutors said.
