DAVENPORT MAN SENTENCED ON FEDERAL CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES

United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 29, 2012

DAVENPORT MAN SENTENCED ON FEDERAL CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES

     On June 29, 2012, Joseph Andrew Richter, age 36, of Davenport, Iowa, was sentenced to 100 months of imprisonment for one count of receiving and distributing child pornography, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt.  United States Chief District Judge James E. Gritzner also ordered Richter to serve a term of supervised release of 5 years following his incarceration and pay an assessment of $100 to Crime Victims Fund.
     The case began during an online undercover peer-to-peer investigation.  Law enforcement identified an internet protocol (IP) address associated with the file sharing of child pornography.  Subsequent investigation showed that his IP address came back to Richter's residence.  A search warrant located Richter's laptop and other media, which were found to contain child pornography.
     This investigation was conducted by the United States Secret Service, the Davenport, Iowa, Police Department, and the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.  The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney's Office, Southern District of Iowa.
