Las Vegas Man Sentenced To Over 15 Years In Prison For Child Sexual Exploitation And Possession Of Child Pornography

LAS VEGAS – A Las Vegas man who admitted to sexually exploiting a child and possessing child sexual abuse material was sentenced today to 15 years and 10 months in prison.

According to court documents, on April 9, 2020, Kenneth James Robison (35) recorded a video of himself sexually exploiting a child who was less than 12 years old. That same day, he shared the video with others using Kik, an online messaging platform. Additionally, Robison possessed more than 600 items of child pornography — including a video of the sexual assault of an infant — in online cloud storage.

Robison pleaded guilty in September 2021 to one count of sexual exploitation of children and one count of possession of child pornography. In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Judge Richard F. Boulware II sentenced Robison to a lifetime term of supervised release and ordered Robison to pay restitution to his victims.

Acting U.S. Attorney Christopher Chiou for the District of Nevada and Special Agent in Charge Aaron C. Rouse for the FBI made the announcement.

This case was investigated by the FBI and the North Las Vegas Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Supriya Prasad prosecuted the case.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, 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.
