Terre Haute Man Sentenced To 15 Years For Production Of Child Pornography

Department of Justice Terre Haute ManIndianapolis, IN-(ENEWSPF)- United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced that a Terre Haute man was sentenced for his role in producing and possessing child pornography. David Roberts, 50, was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson.

“Protecting our most vulnerable citizens from sexual predators has been and will remain a top priority of this office,” said Minkler. “If you abuse children in the Southern District of Indiana, you can expect the full wrath of federal prosecution.”

Between 2007 and 2012, Roberts placed hidden cameras in the bedrooms and bathrooms at a home he shared with two minor female victims, creating images of them in various stages of undress. One of the victims reported the activity to her mother who notified the Terre Haute Police Department.

Law enforcement served search warrants on his home and recovered more than 23,000 images and videos of pornography stored on electronic equipment and storage devices. Law enforcement also discovered that Roberts surreptitiously recorded five other female minor victims, who had visited the family home.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Terre Haute, Indiana, Police Department investigated this case.

According to Assistant United States Attorney Tiffany J. Preston who prosecuted this case for the government, Roberts must serve five years of supervised release following his term of imprisonment.
