Brian Krzeczowski Sentenced to 24 Years in Prison for Child Pornography Production
CHATTANOOGA, TN—Brian Lee Krzeczowski, 42, of Dayton, Tenn., has been convicted and sentenced to 292 months’ imprisonment followed by a five year term of supervised release in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Chattanooga, by the Honorable Harry S. Mattice, United States District Judge. The sentence was the result of a guilty plea by Krzeczowski on December 23, 2014, to a federal grand jury indictment charging him with production of child pornography.
The indictment and subsequent conviction of Krzeczowski was the result of a year-long investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rhea County Sheriff’s Department, and the Gallatin (TN) Police Department. The investigation began when a young woman reported to the Gallatin Police that when she was 16 years old, Krzeczowski, a man with whom she had had a romantic relationship over the Internet, had coerced her into taking sexually explicit pictures of herself and sending them to him. After they broke off their on-line relationship, Krzeczowski posted some of the sexually explicit photos of her on her Facebook page. The FBI, along with an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Officer from the Gallatin Police Department, discovered after searching Krzeczowski’s computer that there was at least one other minor victim who had sent sexually explicit images of herself to Krzeczowski.
