Wichita Man Sentenced For Distributing Child Porn

WICHITA, KAN. - A Wichita man was sentenced Monday to five years in federal prison for distributing child pornography, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Amel Kevin Loop, 54, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that in November 2012 an FBI agent used the Internet to download images of child pornography from Loop’s computer. The images were transferred using an encrypted peer-to-peer network. The images included sexually explicit photos of a child no more than two years old.

Grissom commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
