Owner of former music store in southeastern Michigan convicted in child pornography case


MONROE, Michigan — The owner of a former southeastern Michigan music store who is charged with sexually assaulting two teenage boys has been convicted in a related child pornography case.

The Monroe News reports (http://bit.ly/1KJZUEB ) 51-year-old Robert Stumpmier of South Rockwood faces sentencing July 30 after being convicted this week of six counts each of possession of child sexually abusive materials and using a computer to commit a crime.

Defense lawyer Steven Hyder says Stumpmier had no knowledge the images were on his computer and a defense expert testified the age of a person in a photo can't be known by just looking at it.

Stumpmier owned Power Play Music in Monroe and was the founding member of a 4-H music club. He's awaiting trial in the 2014 sexual assault case.
