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

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas City, Kan., man who told investigators he had been viewing child pornography online for decades was sentenced today to 10 years in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Stephan McAllister said.

David Lehman, 51, Kansas City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of receiving and distributing child pornography. In his plea, Lehman admitted that an investigator used a peer-to-peer file-sharing program to download child pornography from Lehman’s computer. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children identified more than 6,000 images and 83 videos containing images of victims who investigators previously had identified.

In his plea agreement, Lehman agreed to pay $2,000 in restitution to each of nine identified victims.

McAllister commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Flannigan for their work on the case.
