Muldrow Man Sentenced To 120 Months, $8,500 Restitution For Possession Of Material Involving Sexual Exploitation Of Minors

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Ryan Edward Offineer, age 41, of Muldrow, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 120 months’ imprisonment, 15 years’ supervised release, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $8,500.00 for Possession Of Certain Material Involving The Sexual Exploitation Of Minors, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2252(a)(4)(B) and 2252(b)(2). The charges arose from an investigation by the Muldrow Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

The Indictment alleged that beginning in or about June 2013, to on or about March 7, 2018, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly possessed, attempted to possess and accessed with intent to view, matters which contained visual depictions, as that term is defined in Title 18, United States Code, Section 2256(5). Those visual depictions involved the use of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, and had been transported in interstate commerce by computer.  

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “People who possess child pornography should never feel comfortable that their despicable acts will go undetected. Across the country there are law enforcement agencies working diligently to detect, investigate and prosecute those who exploit children. This defendant’s sentence is a result of that work.”

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney John David Luton represented the United States. The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
