Chadron Man Sentenced for Receipt and Distribution of Child Pornography

February 20, 2013

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Robert Fleming, 32, of Chadron, Nebraska, was sentenced today, February 20, 2013, in Lincoln, Nebraska, to 10 years in prison by United States District Judge Richard G. Kopf, for receipt and distribution of child pornography.  After his release from prison, Fleming will be required to serve the rest of his life under supervision.   

On November 22, 2008, the Chadron Police Department executed a search warrant at Fleming’s residence in Chadron, Nebraska.  The Chadron Police Department then contacted the FBI seeking assistance in conducting forensic examinations of the computer and other storage media to determine if there was child pornography on the items seized from Fleming’s residence.  The FBI determined that there were 78 videos and 4,000 pornographic images depicting child pornography found on the computer and storage media.  The images found included prepubescent minors engaged in graphic sexually explicit conduct.  The images were received from at least July 27, 2006 to November 22, 2008. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Chadron Police Department.
