Brian Krzeczowski Sentenced To Twenty-Four Years In Prison For Child Pornography Production

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -  Brian Lee Krzeczowski, 42, of Dayton, Tenn., has been convicted and sentenced by the Honorable Harry S. Mattice, U.S. District Judge, to serve 292 months in prison followed by a five year term of supervised release.  Krzeczowski pleaded guilty in December 2014, to a federal grand jury indictment charging him with production of child pornography.

The indictment and subsequent conviction of Krzeczowski was the result of a year-long investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Rhea County Sheriff’s Department, and Gallatin Tennessee Police Department.  The investigation began when a young woman reported to the Gallatin Police that when she was 16 years old, Krzeczowski, a man with whom she had had a romantic relationship over the internet, had coerced her into taking sexually explicit pictures of herself and sending them to him. After they broke off their online relationship, Krzeczowski posted some of the sexually explicit photos of her on her Facebook page.  The FBI, along with an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Officer from the Gallatin Police Department, discovered after searching Krzeczowski’s computer that there was at least one other minor victim who had sent sexually explicit images of herself to Krzeczowski.
