Inola Man and Tulsa Man Plead Guilty to Child Pornography Charges

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Oklahoma

Two men pleaded guilty this week in federal court to child pornography charges, announced U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

Eli Cooper Cailler, 24, of Inola, pleaded guilty on Feb. 16, 2023, to possession of child pornography and receipt of child pornography. In his plea agreement, Cailler stated that he possessed, accessed and received child sexual abuse material. The material included an extensive number of photographs and videos of minors under the age of 12. He further stated that he possessed the images on his own electronic devices, which no one else had access to and that he received the visual depictions using Google Drive and the dark web. The Tulsa Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Leah Paisner is prosecuting the case.

Mikaili Diwani Cohn, 25, of Tulsa, pleaded guilty on Feb. 13, 2023, to receipt and distribution of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and failure to register as a sex offender. The investigation was initiated after Cohn failed to update his sex offender registry with his new Tulsa address. When he was located, U.S. Probation officials arrested Cohn and confiscated his phone. Homeland Security Investigations agents later discovered child sexual abuse material on the phone. In his plea agreement, Cohn admitted to possessing and distributing three child pornography videos via Kik from May 26, 2022, through July 12, 2022. At least one of the videos depicted a child under the age of 12. Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys George Jiang and Valeria G. Luster are prosecuting the case.

These cases were brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
