Chadron man sentenced to prison for child pornography

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg says that 32 year old Robert Fleming of Chadron was sentenced Wednesdayto 10 years in prison by United States District Judge Richard G. Kopf, for receipt and distribution of child pornography. After his release from prison, Fleming will be required to serve the rest of his life under supervision.

On November 22, 2008, the Chadron Police Department executed a search warrant at Fleming's Chadron residence. The Police Department then contacted the FBI seeking assistance in conducting forensic examinations of the computer and other storage media to determine if there was child pornography on the items seized from Fleming's residence.

The FBI determined that there were 78 videos and 4,000 pornographic images depicting child pornography found on the computer and storage media. The images found included prepubescent minors engaged in graphic sexually explicit conduct. The images were received for more than a two year period leading up to Fleming's arrest the same day Polic executed the search warrant.
