Omaha Man Sentenced to Five Years For Distributing Child Pornography

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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Benjamin Kabourek, 36, of Omaha was sentenced today in federal court for distributing child pornography. The Honorable Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Kabourek to 5 years’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison Kabourek will serve a 10-year term of supervised release and be required to register as a sex offender. Kabourek must also pay $2,000 in restitution to one of the children whose image he received and maintained on his computer.

Between December, 2016 and January, 2017 Kabourek was observed distributing images of child pornography over the internet. A federal search warrant was served by members of the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force. A search of Kabourek’s electronic devices revealed a video and 7 images of prepubescent minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

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 United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (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.
