Omaha Man Sentenced to 66 Months for Distributing Child Pornography

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Casey Kountze, age 41, was sentenced in federal court today in Omaha, Nebraska, for distribution of child pornography.  Senior District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Kountze to 66 months’ imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After completing his term of imprisonment, Kountze will begin a five-year term of supervised release. 

Between September 1, 2017, and September 17, 2017, Kountze distributed videos of child pornography by making the videos available on the internet for other individuals to view.  Following an investigation, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Kountze’s Omaha residence on February 16, 2018.  Officers collected Kountze’s laptop computer which contained about 311 images of child pornography on the hard drive.  The child pornography images included children under the age of 12 and prepubescent children engaging in sex acts.   

The case was investigated by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
