Cleveland man indicted for child pornography offenses
A Cleveland man was charged with child pornography crimes, said U.S Attorney Justin E. Herdman and FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen D. Anthiony.
Anthony Gore, 24, was indicted on one count of receipt of visual depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Gore received numbers computer files with contained visual depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. This took place between February and April 2017, according to the indictment.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant's role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S Attorney Carol M. Skutnik following an investigation by Task Force Officer Joanna Nagy Unger, with the FBI Violent Crime/Child Exploitation Task Force.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
