Livingston Man Sentenced to Five Years in Prison for Child Porn

MISSOULA – Blaine Garrett Reposa, 47, of Livingston, Montana, was sentenced today in Missoula federal court for distribution of child pornography.  Reposa pleaded guilty to the charge in August.  Chief U.S. District Court Judge Dana Christensen Sentenced Reposa to 60 months incarceration.  Following his release, Reposa will be subject to 20 years supervised release.

In an offer of proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Cyndee Peterson, the government stated that if the case had proceeded to trial, the government would have introduced evidence that in January 2014, an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force detective received a cyber-tip that images of child pornography had been uploaded to a Tumblr account.  The IP logs for the upload were associated with Reposa’s residence.  A search of the residence produced numerous digital devices, which, on examination, provided evidence that Reposa uploaded images of child pornography to the Tumblr account in question between October 2013 and January 2014.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Cyndee Peterson and investigated by the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force.  Reposa will have to serve at least 85% of his sentence before he will be eligible for parole.
