United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that Kevin Allen Lamm, a/k/a Mike Malone, age 35, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was found guilty of Possessing, Distributing, and Producing Child Pornography as a result of a federal jury trial in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
The charges carry a maximum penalty of 50 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000.00 fine, lifetime of supervised release, and a $300 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Lamm was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 9, 2017.

When law enforcement searched his Sioux Falls apartment, they found child pornography on a digital memory card.
This case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.
A presentence investigation was ordered and Lamm is scheduled to be sentenced on January 13, 2020. The defendant was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
