Kenton County Man Admits Making Child Pornography Available for Download on the Internet
COVINGTON — A Kenton County man has admitted to making child pornography images and videos available for download over the internet.
On Thursday, Alan K. Newberry, 43, of Park Hills, Ky., pleaded guilty to distribution of child pornography. Based on his conviction, Newberry will be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
According to Newberry’s plea agreement, authorities with the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office identified child pornography files that had been made available for download on the internet. They traced the source of the images and videos to Newberry’s computer, which was located at his home in Park Hills. Authorities executed a search warrant at Newberry’s residence, searched his computer, and found 4,000 images and 700 videos of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Many of the images depicted prepubescent children and sadistic conduct.
Kerry B. Harvey, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, and Jack Conway, Kentucky Attorney General, jointly announced the guilty plea.
The investigation was conducted by the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General.
Newberry is scheduled for sentencing on September 24, 2015. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison. The Court must consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statutes before imposing a sentence.
