Omaha Man Sentenced to Sixty Months for Receiving Child Pornography
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that David C. Evans, 35, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha for receiving child pornography. The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Evans to sixty months of prison. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison Evans will be under federal supervision for five years and be required to register as a sex offender.
On July 11, 2012, Evans’ computer was observed by law enforcement officers with images of child pornography available for sharing. Two of the videos involved prepubescent minors engaged in sexual acts.
A search warrant was executed by agents of Homeland Security Investigations on November 14, 2012. Forensic analysis recovered deleted files of child pornography. Search terms consistent with seeking and receiving child pornography were recovered. Four videos of child pornography were found in a shared file folder.
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 Attorneys 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.
