Judge Upholds Sentence for Former Moorhead Hockey Player

The plea deal for a junior year hockey player convicted of child pornography has been approved by Clay County Judge Michael Fritz.

20-year-old Thomas Carey will spend two more weeks in the Clay County Jail.

The judge sentenced him to 45 days in jail and 10 years of probation for making a sex video with a 15-year-old girl.

Carey and 20-year-old Brandon Smith pleaded guilty to the charges back in November.

As part of the plea deal, if Carey follows probation, he will not have to register as a sex offender. Smith’s sentencing is set for Thursday.
