Wasilla Man Indicted For Sexual Exploitation of Children

Anchorage, Alaska – U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced today that a Wasilla man was arraigned in Federal Court in Anchorage before Magistrate Judge John D. Roberts on two counts of sexual exploitation of children:  advertising and distributing child pornography.

Daniel Clinton Piaskowski, a 33-year-old man from Wasilla, Alaska, was indicted by a federal grand jury, and arrested on a warrant on February 21, 2014.  The indictment comes after an investigation led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

The FBI’s investigation of Piaskowski is ongoing, and the FBI is seeking to determine if Piaskowski had inappropriate contact with children.  Anyone with relevant information is asked to contact the FBI's Anchorage Field Office at (907) 276-4441.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
