Millvale Man Charged with Transporting a Minor for Sex, Other Child Exploitation Charges

PITTSBURGH - A former resident of Millvale, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of transporting a minor in interstate commerce for the purpose of engaging in sexual conduct, as well as producing and distributing images and videos of such sexual conduct, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The six-count indictment, returned on June 27, named Daniel A. Kundrat, 34, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, Kundrat, on August 10, 2016, traveled to Columbus, Ohio, where he picked up a 14-year old female, whom he brought back to the State of Pennsylvania with the intent to engage in unlawful sexual activity, including intercourse. He is further alleged to have produced videos of their sexual activity on August 22, 2016, and on August 31, 2016, as well as to have distributed in interstate and foreign commerce three videos depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of life in prison, a fine of $1,500,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn J. Bloch is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Allegheny County Police Department, Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office, and Millvale Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
