HARRISBURG—The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on January 21, 2022, Daniel Lee Boose, age 39, of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment by United States District Court Judge Jennifer P. Wilson for receiving child pornography.  Boose was also ordered to register as a sex offender and serve 10 years of supervised release following his release from prison.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, Boose previously pleaded guilty in this case to receiving images of child pornography within Middle District of Pennsylvania.  Gurganus noted that at the time of his arrest, Boose was found to be in possession of more than 1,000 images of child pornography, including images of prepubescent children, much of which consisted of sexually explicit material involving children between the ages of 7 and 13.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Christian T. Haugsby prosecuted the case.

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, 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.
