McClain County man gets 17 years for child pornography

Roger Kuhn was arrested in May for possessing several images of child pornography. He was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison.

A convicted felon man who admitted to distributing child pornography has received 17 years in prison.

28-year-old Roger Kuhn was sentenced in federal court Wednesday for the crimes. His official sentence is to 210 months plus 10 years supervision once released and he'll be required to register as a sex offender.

Kuhn was arrested in May and entered a guilty plea in June where he admitted to downloading and distributing the pornography. According to court records, Kuhn heavily consumed child pornography that he downloaded via the internet.

A Canadian County Computer Crimes Investigator applied for a warrant from a judge in Cleveland County after he said he received numerous images of graphic child pornography from Roger Kuhn over the internet in Canadian County over a period of three weeks. On May 21, police served the warrant and arrested Kuhn.

While undergoing a polygraph exam, Kuhn reportedly told deputies he sexually molested at least ten children ranging in age from three to 14 years old.

The case was part of Project Safe Childhood, the flagship program in the Department of Justice's National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction, and was the result of an investigation conducted by the Canadian County Sheriff's Department, and the United States Secret Service.
