A 32-year-old Missouri man was was sentenced to 14 years in prison on Nov. 30 for receipt of child pornograhy charges in U.S. District Court for North Dakota.
Judge Ralph R. Erickson also sentenced Billy Wynn Jr. to serve 20 years supervised release and to pay a $200 special assessment to the Crime Victims’ Fund, according to U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers.
Wynn, who moved to North Dakota in September 2013, created various email accounts in alias names to communicate directly with members of a Web-email-based child pornography ring and to access the criminal materials, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Myers said the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Homeland Security initiated the investigation in North Dakota, and that other individuals, including the administrator of a Web-based account, have since been arrested. The case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.
