Worob, 25, was arrested in January.
(WESH.COM) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A former executive producer at WNDB Radio in Daytona Beach pleaded no contest to 15 counts of possessing and promoting child pornography on Wednesday.

Chand Worob was arrested at the radio station in January after police found hundreds of sexually explicit images of children, some as young as 5 years old.

A judge ordered Worob to spend five years in prison and then serve 10 years of probation as a sex offender.

Worob’s attorney said his client is full of remorse and that curiosity got him into trouble.

“He immediately enrolled in sex offender counseling. He’s been seeing a counselor twice a week and not only does he want to put this behind him, but he also wants to make sure that he doesn’t engage in this behavior again,” said Steven Delaroche, Worob’s attorney.

At the time of Worob’s arrest, he was producing a show for talk radio host Marc Bernier.
Investigators said none of Worob’s criminal behavior occurred at work, but he was still fired immediately after his arrest..

“We are disappointed with this news, and the entire WNDB staff was as shocked as the rest of the community. We are cooperating fully with law enforcement. The Daytona Beach Police Department investigation found no illegal activities on radio station property or through use of radio station equipment,” owner Paul Stone and general manager Barry Brown said in a statement.
