Sacramento Man Indicted for Trading Child Pornography

A federal grand jury returned a sealed indictment on Thursday, January 31, 2013, charging Erik David McKinney, 27, formerly of Chico and presently of Sacramento, with two counts of receiving and sharing child pornography, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced. The indictment was unsealed and McKinney was arraigned on February 6, 2013.

According to court documents, between June 10, 2010 and July 28, 2010, McKinney, while living in Chico, received and shared images of child pornography through the Internet. The indictment alleges that after McKinney moved to Sacramento, he continued receiving and sharing images of child pornography until November 14, 2012.

This case is the product of an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Kyle Reardon is prosecuting the case.

If convicted, McKinney faces a statutory penalty of five to 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and a lifetime of supervised release. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.
