Registered Sex Offender Sentenced to 10 Years for Possessing Child Pornography

MISSOULA – A Kalispell man was sentenced today for possessing child pornography.  Darrin Evan Malley, 36, was ordered to serve 120 months in prison followed by 15 years of supervised release in connection to his October 2014 guilty plea. U.S. District Court Judge Dana L. Christensen presided over the sentencing.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zeno Baucus told the court that law enforcement received a complaint from a concerned citizen who had viewed child pornography on the defendant’s computer.  At the time, the defendant was a registered sex offender who had previously been convicted of transporting/shipping child pornography.  A forensic review of the defendant’s electronic media revealed over 1,000 images and roughly 20 videos of child pornography. The defendant acknowledged that he knew it was illegal to possess child pornography.

The investigation was conducted by Homeland Security Investigations and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Zeno Baucus.
