A Cameron Park man was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison for receiving child pornography.
U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller also fined 32-year-old Kendal Mychael Lobb $250,000, according to a federal Department of Justice news release.
Court documents indicate that in July 2012, law enforcement investigators identified Lobb’s computer as a source of online child pornography. Among the files offered were videos of prepubescent children being sexually assaulted by adults. Officers executed a search warrant at Lobb’s residence and found more than 100 images and 300 videos of child pornography. Lobb had downloaded these through the Internet between April 12, 2003, and Oct. 5, 2012.
The case resulted from an investigation by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children task force, a federally and state funded task force managed by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and composed of agents from federal, state and local agencies. The task force investigates online child exploitation crimes, including child pornography, enticement and sex trafficking.
