Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Marvin, South Dakota, man convicted of Production of Child Pornography was sentenced on October 4, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Adam Robert Lane age 35, was sentenced to 360 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Lane was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 2, 2021.  He pled guilty on July 12, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from incidents on or about between July 18, 2020, and October 23, 2020, when Lane intentionally used his cellular phone to take pictures and videos of a minor female who was 7 years old at the time. 

This case was investigated by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation and Homeland Security Investigations.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

Lane was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
