An Eastlake man was indicted in federal court of child pornography charges.
Craig A. White, 40, was indicted on one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
The indictment charges that from on or about July 3, 2017 through on or about March 6, 2019, , White received and distributed files contained visual depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. The indictment also charges that on June 10, 2019, White possessed a computer tower with several internal and external hard drives that contained child pornography.
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 United States Attorney Carol M. Skutnik following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Child Exploitation Task Force.
A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
