MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Blaine man was has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for producing and possessing child pornography.

Scott Francis Fortier, 38, was found guilty of one count of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography, in January.

Fortier’s charges stemmed from his role at a horseback riding camp in Todd County called Circle R Ranch. Fortier met two underage girls there and invited them to his home in Blaine in September 2016.

According to U.S. Attorney Gregory G. Booker’s office, Fortier gave the girls alcohol and engaged in sexually explicit conduct with them, which he filmed with his cellphone.

Authorities searched Fortier’s home and found thousands of images of child pornography, as well as videos of children under 12 engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

“Scott Fortier is a serial predator and rapist who victimized underage girls whom he met at a summer camp where he frequented,” U.S. Attorney Erica H. MacDonald said. “I am grateful that the Court recognized the severity of this type of predatory conduct and I commend the diligent work of the investigators and prosecutors in bringing this defendant to justice.”

Fortier was charged the previous August.

  1. What we know about this kind of person is they never get better and will reoffend. Why do we go through the trouble of civil commitment after their prison time is served? Why not just give him 75 years? He will be done serving his time when he is in his mid 50s. Do you think he will be all better and never try it again. He will reoffend.
