Westfield Man Indicted For Receipt of Child Pornography

HAMMOND - Acting United States Attorney Clifford D. Johnson announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Hammond has returned an indictment against William Moit, age 70, who was formerly a resident of Rensselaer, Indiana but now resides in Westfield, Indiana.


According to documents in this case, Moit, who was convicted in Jasper County, Indiana in 2000 for possessing child pornography and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, was charged, in the federal indictment, with receiving child pornography.


If you have any information about Moit’s activities involving children, please contact Task Force Officer Jones at the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 219-942-4900.


The United States Attorney's Office emphasized that an Indictment is merely an allegation and that all persons charged are presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty in court.


If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.


This case is the result of the investigative efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Indiana State Police. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jill R. Koster.
