Former Mrs Curl owner sentenced for child porn possession

The former owner of a popular Greenwood ice cream shop has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.


John Cassin, 75, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography. As part of the plea agreement, he will serve three years on probation, with the first year on home detention. Cassin will also have to register as a sex offender for life.


Cassin was the owner of the Mrs. Curl ice cream shop in Greenwood before being arrested in April 2019. Investigators found sexually explicit photos of children on his home computer in Whiteland.


Mrs. Curl remained open under new ownership.
