Emporia Man Sentenced for Child Pornography

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Kansas

WICHITA, KAN. - An Emporia man was sentenced Monday to six years in federal prison for distributing child pornography, Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.

Zachary E. Krueger, 33, Emporia, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted he distributed child pornography over the Internet using an encrypted peer-to-peer network. The investigation began with an Internet chat between Krueger and an undercover agent in Delaware. Krueger gave the agent a password to access and download files including images of prepubescent children engaged in sexual activities. Investigators traced Krueger’s IP address back to his home in Emporia.

Beall commended Homeland Security Investigations and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
