Berea Man Indicted for Child Pornography Crimes

LEXINGTON, Ky.- Larry Dale Foley, 48, of Berea, Kentucky, was indicted on Thursday in federal court for receipt, distribution, and possession of child pornography.

The indictment alleges that, on December 17, 2018, Foley received images of child pornography. Foley is also charged with distributing child pornography on December 30, 2018.  The indictment alleges that on January 6, 2020, Foley possessed images of child pornography.  The indictment seeks forfeiture of Foley’s interest in several cellphones, tablets, laptop computers and flash drives.           

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Berea Police Department. If anyone has additional information related to the case, they are encouraged to contact the FBI at (859) 254-4038.

Foley’s next appearance before the United States District Court in Lexington is TBD. If convicted, Foley faces a maximum prison sentence of 20 years. However, any sentence following conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the United States Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of sentences.

Any indictment is an accusation only. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
