Bellevue Man Sentenced for Receipt of Child Pornography

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

Acting United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Jacob R. Price, 38, Bellevue, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court by Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. to 168 months’ imprisonment for receipt of child pornography. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison, Price will begin a five-year term of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender.

On November 9, 2020, Officers with the Bellevue Police Department were dispatched to a residence in Bellevue.  Upon arrival offices were informed that the reporting party found a video of a naked minor on a cellphone previously used by Price.  Officers forensically analyzed the contents of the cellphone and located a video showing a minor getting undressed.  The video showed Price covertly placing the cellphone in the minor’s bedroom for purposes of videoing the minor while she was naked.  The cellphone also contained additional thumbnail images of unknown minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct that Price downloaded from the internet. 

This case was 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.
