Daniel Harrison McGrath pleaded guilty to federal charges of possessing child pornography in March 2013.

According to federal court online records, his sentencing has been rescheduled for Dec. 5.

More than 3,000 images and videos of child pornography were discovered during a police investigation into the death of McGrath’s 2-year-old granddaughter, whose body was found in McGrath’s Roseville home April 4, 2012. When told by law enforcement officers that a search warrant would be executed and his computers taken as part of the the investigation, McGrath reportedly told authorities that he had “sensitive” information on the computers, then admitted that they contained files of child pornography.

McGrath’s daughter, Denise Marie McGrath Wilder, was arrested in connection with the death of her 2-year-old daughter. She pleaded no contest to felony child abuse and child neglect resulting in the death of a child, and was sentenced in December 2013 to 10 years and four months in prison.
