A Gridley man, convicted in a child porn case, was sentenced to life in prison Thursday in Butte County Superior Court. Ricky Leach, 56-years-old, was convicted in December for being in possession of more than six thousand images. This is a three-strikes case. Leach had two prior convictions for forcible rape in the 1980's. Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey called Leach a "dangerous predator" and said California's Three Srikes law, in this case, is helping keep the community safe.
