Riverside Man Sentenced for Possessing Child Pornography

DAYTON – Frederick McAdoo, 57, of Riverside, Ohio was sentenced in U.S. District Court today to 30 months in prison for possessing more than 100 video files and more than 350 images of child pornography depicting victims as young as five years old.

Benjamin C. Glassman, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Angela L. Byers, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Cincinnati Field Division announced the sentence handed down today by U.S. District Judge Thomas M. Rose.

According to court documents, McAdoo accumulated and shared the digital images and videos for nine years, beginning in 2005. FBI agents patrolling the Internet in 2014 found the images in a file-sharing website and tracked them to McAdoo’s residence.

Investigators seized 11 hard drives, four computers, and more than 200 pieces of digital storage media during the investigation.

McAdoo will be notified when he is to surrender to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to begin serving his sentence. After completing his time in prison, McAdoo will remain under court supervision for five years. While under court supervision, he must register as a sex offender anywhere that he lives, works or goes to school. Monitoring software will be installed on all of his computers. His computer use will be restricted and he must disclose any contact he has with minors.

McAdoo pleaded guilty on May 13, 2016 to one count of possession of child pornography.

Acting U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the cooperative investigation by the FBI and the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, as well as Assistant United States Attorney Alex R. Sistla, who is representing the United States in this case.
