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

United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Jason Stoolman, 51, of Papillion, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for distributing child pornography.  United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Stoolman to 132 months of imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After completing his term of imprisonment, Stoolman will begin a five-year term of supervised release.  Stoolman must also pay $18,000 in restitution.  

On September 20, 2020, Stoolman distributed child pornography online via Kik.  Between February of 2021 and April 2021, Stoolman uploaded child pornography to Kik.  On March 23, 2021, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Stoolman’s Omaha residence.  Officers obtained Stoolman’s iPad and located approximately 1,421 files of child pornography involving prepubescent children on it.  Stoolman was knowingly in possession of this child pornography. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and 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.
