Papillion Man Sentenced to 66 Months for Receiving Child Pornography

Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced that Justin Haynes, 31, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for receiving child pornography.  The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Haynes to a 66-month term of imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, Haynes will begin a five-year term of supervised release and be required to register as a sex offender.

A federal search warrant was executed on Haynes’s Papillion residence on February 28, 2017.  Haynes admitted to downloading and saving videos of child pornography.  Several videos were of children under the age of 8 and some under the age of 5 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.

This case was investigated by the Omaha FBI's Cyber Crime Task Force (CCTF).
