“Those who accept the responsibility of public trust and betray it, will be held accountable for their actions. Additionally, we are unwavering in our resolve to find and prosecute those who exploit our children,’ Hogsett said. AAs this case shows, you are not anonymous online—if you engage in this behavior, you will be identified and you will be prosecuted.’
According to charging documents, law enforcement first began their investigation in June 2013, when an undercover member of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Southern Indiana Child Exploitation Task Force connected with a computer that was allegedly sharing sexually-explicit images depicting young children. After downloading a number of these files from the user, investigators traced the online activity to a home in Evansville.
