Overland Park Man Sentenced to 8+ Years For 44,000 Images of Child Porn

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – An Overland Park man who admitted he collected more than 44,000 images of child porn and shared some with other computer users was sentenced today to 100 months in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Robert A. Weick, 33, Overland Park, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. Weick came under investigation when a task force officer from the FBI used a file-sharing program to download child pornography from Weick’s computer. When investigators served a search warrant at Weick’s home, they discovered approximately 44,000 images and 500 videos containing child pornography.

Weick also was ordered to pay $40,000 in restitution to victims who have been identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. McAllister commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Flannigan for their work on the case.
