Cary Man Sentenced For Manufacturing Child Pornography
RALEIGH – United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that today in federal court, United States District Judge Terrence W. Boyle sentenced KYLE MARTIN INCH , 28, of Cary, North Carolina to 300 months imprisonment, followed by a lifetime of supervised release.
INCH was named in an Indictment filed on February 5, 2013 charging him with three counts of Manufacture/Production of Child Pornography; ten counts of Receipt of Child Pornography; and one count of Possession of Child Pornography. On May 21, 2013, INCH pled guilty to Count 1, Manufacture/Production of Child Pornography in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2251(a) and (e).
According to the investigation, in January 2011, the Cary Police Department initiated an online undercover investigation related to the distribution of child pornography. Agents determined that the computer used by INCH offered to distribute child pornography numerous times between January and September of 2011. Agents executed a search warrant pursuant to which they discovered that INCH had not only amassed a collection of hundreds of images and videos of child sexual abuse, but had been recording his own sexual abuse of a child.
This case is part of the Project Safe Childhood initiative, a national program aimed at ensuring that criminals exploiting children are effectively prosecuted by making full use of all available law enforcement resources at every level.
