LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A Louisville resident and former volunteer football coach at Jefferson County Catholic schools was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell to 87 months in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release, for child pornography charges, announced U.S. Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.

Raymond A. Nowacki, age 51, pleaded guilty on July 27, 2015, to a two-count federal indictment charging him with possessing and transporting child pornography by way of a computer. Nowacki remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

According to the plea agreement, On November 24, 2013 a Task Force Officer with the FBI was investigating Kentucky computers that were actively sharing previously-identified child pornography on the Internet. The IP address was tracked to Nowacki’s Louisville residence. On October 31, 2014, the FBI executed a search warrant at Nowacki’s residence and seized a laptop computer. A forensic review of the laptop revealed several images and videos of child pornography.  At the time, Nowacki admitted to downloading child pornography and watching videos of child pornography on his laptop computer. Further, Nowacki admitted that he conducted searches for “teenaged boys” and “teenaged girls” and had been interested in pornography since 2000.

This case was investigated by Assistant United States Attorney A. Spencer McKiness and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Louisville Metro Police.
