Uniontown Man Charged with Producing Child Porn Videos and Images

PITTSBURGH – A resident of Uniontown, Pennsylvania has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of Production of a Visual Depiction of a Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.

The one-count Indictment named Zachary Bosh, age 38, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment, on or about April 12, 2019, Bosh produced digital images and videos that depict the sexual exploitation of a minor female.

The law provides for a total sentence of not less than 15 years in prison and a fine not to exceed $250,000.00. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Rebecca L. Silinski is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation in conjunction with the FBI Washington Field Office’s (WFO) Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force Investigation 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.

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.
