Description: Lincoln, NE - Man Sentenced to Prison for Viewing Child Pornography
A Nebraska man was sentenced on March 5, 2018 to six years in prison for accessing with an intent to view child pornography.
Dick Wollman, 60, of Omaha, Nebraska, pleaded guilty on Oct. 16, 2017 to accessing with the intent to view child pornography. U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp of the District of Nebraska sentenced Wollman and also ordered him to serve 10 years of supervised release.
According to facts admitted by Wollman during the guilty plea, law enforcement identified Wollman as a user of an Internet-based video conferencing platform used to stream images and videos of child pornography during group video chats. Wollman was observed by law enforcement viewing videos and images of prepubescent child pornography being streamed on the platform. The defendant further admitted that he accessed the video conferencing platform more than a hundred times between November 2015 and February 2017 to view child pornography.
The charges are the result of an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
