Pleasanton Man Sentenced for Child Pornography Charge
SAN ANTONIO – A Pleasanton man was sentenced today to 75 months in prison for receipt of child pornography.
According to court documents, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents executed a search warrant in July 2019 at the residence of Daniel Lee Ogorzolka, 70. Two devices were seized that contained over 25 videos and over 2,000 images of prepubescent children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Ogorzolka has remained in federal custody since his arrest on November 27, 2019. He pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography in March 2022. In addition to his prison term, Ogorzolka was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release and ordered to pay $20,000 in restitution.
“Today’s sentence serves as a strong message to anyone who seeks to sexually exploit and endanger children,” said U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Hoff. “You will be investigated; you will be identified; and you will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
“HSI San Antonio remains committed in partnering with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and other industry partners to identify individuals distributing child pornography on the internet,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Craig Larrabee. “Investigating those who prey on our children remains a top concern for HSI and our partners. Together, we continue to dedicate our resources under Operation Predator to identify and investigate those who victimize our most vulnerable population”.
HSI investigated the case.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Thompson prosecuted the case.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, 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.
