Former Pulaski County Illinois Resident Indicted for Receipt of Child Pornography
Clint Wade Green, 42, of Paducah, Ky., was indicted on February 23, 2017 on four counts of receipt of child pornography, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Donald S. Boyce, announced today. The case is set for trial on April 24, 2017 in Benton, Illinois. Green has been ordered detained pending trial.
The indictment alleges that in October 2015 on four separate occasions, Green knowingly received materials that contained child pornography in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2252A(a)(2)(B). If convicted, Green faces a prison sentence of not less than five years and up to 20 years on each count, a fine of up to $250,000, and up to three years supervised release.
The prosecution is the result of an investigation by the FBI-Marion. The Department of Agriculture Office of Inspector General, the Illinois State Police, and the Paducah Kentucky Police Department also participated in this investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney James G. Piper, Jr.
An indictment is a formal charge against a defendant. Under the law, that charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
