Roff Man Sentenced To 80 Months 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 Dalton Wayne Woods, age 25, of Roff, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 80 months’ imprisonment and 10 years of supervised release 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation.  

The Indictment alleged that between on or about March 19, 2017, to on or about May 5, 2017, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly possessed, attempted to possess and access with intent to view matters which contained visual depictions, of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, as that term is defined in Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2256(2)(A)-(B), and said visual depictions had been transported in interstate commerce by computer.

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “Protecting children from the sexual deviants who pursue them is a top priority of the Department of Justice. Those who participate in the despicable business of child pornography – including those who possess it – victimize children in the cruelest and most heinous and inhumane ways. Perpetrators use modern technology to obtain and view the abuse of children.  The law enforcement community will use technology in every lawful way to pursue and bring to justice those who victimize children.” 

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 Edward Snow represented the United States.
