Orlando Man Sentenced For Receiving Child Pornography

Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Paul G. Byron has sentenced David Ryan Alberts (43, Orlando) to 10 years in federal prison for receiving and possessing child pornography.  The Court also ordered him to pay restitution to the victims of his offense.  Alberts pleaded guilty in September 2015.

According to court documents, Alberts downloaded and possessed scores of images of prepubescent children, including infants, engaged in sexual acts with adults and with other children.  Several of the images depicted sadistic and masochistic conduct, and included images of children engaged in bestiality.  He also searched for and possessed dozens of sexually explicit stories involving incest.  Based on his prior conduct, Alberts received an enhanced sentence for engaging in a pattern of activity involving the sexual abuse or exploitation of minors.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Embry J. Kidd.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit
