For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY – Yesterday, BRADLEY KEITH COLLINS, 44, of Norman, Oklahoma, was sentenced to serve 135 months in federal prison for transportation of child pornography, announced United States Attorney Robert J. Troester. 

In July 2021, Homeland Security Investigations received a Cybertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Collins uploaded 66 picture images of child pornography to his Google Photos account.  On September 7, 2022, a federal grand jury returned a three-count Indictment against Collins, alleging transportation, possession, and accessing of child pornography.  On October 28, 2022, Collins pled guilty to transportation of child pornography.

Yesterday, U.S. District Judge David L. Russell sentenced Collins to serve 135 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, upon release from prison.  In announcing the sentence, Judge Russell noted the circumstances of the offense and Collins’ history and characteristics, including that he had sexual contact with a foster child several years ago.  At sentencing, Judge Russell remanded Collins into federal custody.  He will be required to register as a sex offender upon release from federal prison.

This case is the result of an investigation by the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Hale prosecuted the case.

This case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by U.S. Attorney’s Offices and the DOJ Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit
