Description: Tulsa, OK: Criminal defense lawyer represented defendant charged with possession of child pornography and felony firearm possession.

Jeffrey Rahn Reetz, 67, was charged with possesison of over a thousand images of child pornography.

“Child predator Jeffrey Reetz collected more than 1,000 images and videos of children being sexually abused, illegally possessed nine firearms, then attempted to flee to Cuba to avoid prosecution. Thankfully, law enforcement stopped him, and he will now spend time in federal prison,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson. “This office and our law enforcement partners will use every tool available to hold accountable individuals who possess, distribute or manufacture child pornography.”

Reetz stated in a plea agreement that between March 2019, and January 23, 2020, he knowingly possessed three rifles, two shotguns, four handguns, and 1,421 rounds of ammunition after being convicted of a felony. Reetz further admitted that between January 2017 and January 23, 2020, he knowingly possessed and accessed with intent to view more than 1,000 graphic image files and video files of child pornography, including images of adult males raping toddlers.

On Jan. 23, 2020, agents and officers executed a federal search and seizure warrant at Reetz’s residence and located the firearms. Reetz was subsequently taken into custody at the Tulsa International Airport while he was trying to flee the country to Cuba to avoid arrest and prosecution.
