DISPOSITIONS:

 

Ø  Michael Watkins, 55, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was sentenced by District Judge Theresa Springmann to 121 months imprisonment and 60 years of supervised release after pleading guilty to the felony offenses of distribution child pornography and possession of child pornography.  According to documents filed by the government in this case, a detective with the Noblesville, Indiana Police Department, located the IP address of a user who possessed, and was advertising for share, image and video files that had been previously identified as child pornography in other investigations by law enforcement.  A response to a summons on the internet service provider revealed that the IP address belonged to Watkins.  Pursuant to a federal search warrant, law enforcement recovered a computer, external hard drive and compact discs which contained images and videos of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.  This case resulted from an investigation by members of the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, including the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Noblesville Police Department.  This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lesley Miller Lowery.
