KANSAS CITY, Mo. – David M. Ketchmark, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Claycomo, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for receiving child pornography over the Internet.

Today’s indictment alleges that Romdall received child pornography on March 26, 2012. Romdall is also charged with being in possession of child pornography, in addition to and apart from the images in the first count, on March 28, 2012.

The federal indictment also contains a forfeiture allegation, which would require Romdall to forfeit to the government any property used to commit the alleged offenses, including a Samsung cellular phone.
