Docket #: 2:13-cr-99-MCE
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Travis Marshall Grey, 29, of Citrus Heights, is scheduled to be arraigned today on a two-count indictment that charges him with receipt of child pornography and failure to register as a sex offender, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced.
According to court documents, between January 25, 2013, and January 29, 2013, Grey received images of child pornography through the Internet. In addition, in December 2012 and January 2013, Grey, while living in Citrus Heights, failed to register as a sex offender.
This case is the product of an investigation by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, a federally and state-funded task force managed by the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department with agents from federal, state, and local agencies. The Sacramento ICAC investigates online child exploitation crimes, including child pornography, enticement, and sex trafficking. Assistant United States Attorney Lee S. Bickley is prosecuting the case.
If convicted, Grey faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and a lifetime of supervised release. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.
The charges are only allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
