Burien man sentenced to 15 years in child pornography case
A registered sex offender with a prior conviction of child molestation was sentenced to
15 years in prison for receipt of child pornography. Charles Glenn Perkins, 53, pleaded
guilty in June 2013 following an investigation by the U. S. Immigration and Customs

Ricardo S. Martinez recommended that Perkins be placed at a prison with sex offender
treatment and imposed a 15 year term of supervised release following his prison
sentence. Perkins was identified by law enforcement when he tried to enter Canada on
December 29, 2012 and was denied entry due to his prior convictions for sex offenses.
Perkins is a registered sex offender in Washington State having previously been
convicted of child molestation offenses in Kitsap County in 1987 and 1990. The
