Pahrump Man Who Found Sex Tape Sentenced

PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) - A Nye County man who gave authorities a
videotape showing the sexual assault of a 2-year-old girl has been
sentenced to three years probation.

Darrin Tuck pleaded guilty to conspiracy to obstruct a public officer in February. His plea avoided trial on a felony child pornography possession charge.

Tuck told police he found the video in the desert in Pahrump. The half-hour tape triggered a search for the girl seen on it, and a nationwide manhunt that ended with the Oct. 15 arrest of Chester Arthur Stiles in Henderson.

Stiles is accused of sexually assaulting the toddler in the video. He is due for trial April 15 on charges that could get him multiple life sentences.

The girl was found safe Sept. 28 in Las Vegas.
