MISSOULA -

A former Missoula anesthesiologist who was found with more than 30 videos of child pornography will not serve jail time unless he violates his release conditions.

37-year-old Dr. Douglas Buxton faced felony sexual abuse of children after Missoula Police traced downloaded videos back to his computer.

Before being charged, Buxton worked with Missoula Anesthesiology, which partners with local hospitals, where he specialized in cardiac procedures. Buxton accepted a plea deal in which he agreed to serve a ten-year sentence in the department of corrections with seven years suspended.

His defense reserved the right to argue for a lesser six-year-deferred sentence, which Judge Karen Townsend agreed to.

With good behavior, the conviction could be taken off his record. However, he will be a designated level one sex offender for at least the next decade.

    To survive a grizzly bear attack takes some knowledge, calm nerves, fast thinking and not a little luck. To survive such an attack and to be able to coolly recount it, second by second, without a pause, without a wince, without a flinch, takes an unusual strength of character.
