Dubois Man Pleads Guilty to Possession of Child Pornography
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - A resident of Dubois, Pa., pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of possession of child pornography, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.
Glenn Bailey, 60, pleaded guilty to the indictment before United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson.
In connection with the guilty plea, on July 25, 2013, Bailey knowingly possessed videos and images as computer graphic files containing images of child pornography, including images which depict prepubescent minors and minors who have not attained twelve years of age, which had been shipped and transported in interstate or foreign commerce by means of a computer.
Judge Gibson scheduled sentencing for Oct. 1, 2018, at 10 a.m. The law provides for a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie L. Haines prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement/Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Bailey.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
