Chief Federal District Court Judge Scott W. Skavdahl sentenced JEREMY LEE SESTAK, 38, of Cheyenne, Wyoming on September 30, 2019 for possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography. Sestak was arrested in Cheyenne, Wyoming. He received one hundred eighty months of imprisonment, to be followed by one hundred twenty months of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $200.00 special assessment and $500.00 to the Child Pornography Victim Assistance Act.
In December 2018, Sestak came to the attention of the Wyoming Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force through the receipt of a Cybertip regarding the sharing of child pornography via Tumblr. Subsequent investigation indicated Sestak took sexually explicit photographs of a four year old. On July 19, 2019, Sestak plead guilty to Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography, both in violation of 18 U.S. Code 2252A, in the District of Wyoming. The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), along with affiliated law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Wyoming work together as part of the Wyoming ICAC. Assistant United States Attorney Timothy J. Forwood prosecuted this case.

Led by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
