FORMER YOUTH COUNSELOR SENTENCED ON
CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 8, 2010

Kyle Bremmeyr, 44, of Sterling Heights was sentenced today in federal court to 120 months in federal prison after having pleaded guilty to charges of receiving child pornography via the Internet, United States Attorney Barbara McQuade announced today.

Bremmeyr was sentenced by Judge Marianne Battani in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

The evidence presented to the court at the time of Bremmeyr’s plea established that Bremmeyr, a former counselor who counseled at-risk youth in the Detroit Metropolitan area, collected thousands of images and videos of child pornography and distributed his images online. The evidence retrieved from his apartment included videotapes that Bremmeyr had surreptitiously produced of children at public parks, beaches, and walking home from school. Bremmeyr first came to the attention of law enforcement through a nationwide investigation of an internet bulletin board dedicated to the advertisement, distribution, and sharing of child pornography. Bremmeyr was apprehended after the United States Postal Inspector executed a search warrant at his home, where law enforcement seized his child pornography collection.

The case was investigated by the United States Postal Inspector and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Louis Gabel.
