Park City Man Sentenced to 13+ Years For Distributing Child Porn

WICHITA, KAN. – A man from Park City, Kan., was sentenced Wednesday to 165 months in federal prison for distributing child pornography to young boys over the Internet, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Kyle B. Rains, 31, Park City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that the investigation began after Feb. 6, 2014, when Omegle, an Oregon-based Internet video chat service detected child pornography videos being streamed from Rains’ IP address. Omegle notified the CyberTipline of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which forwarded the information to the Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). Investigators followed an electronic trail to Rains’ residence in Park City.

Investigators determined that Rains was broadcast a video of a toddler being raped and sodomized. He was able to use the Omegle service to select recipients to receive the videos. He targeted young boys.

Grissom commended the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Wichita Police Department, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department, Homeland Security Investigations and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
