Fairview Man Sentenced for Production of Child Pornography
Kevin S. Kolb, 44, of Fairview, Tenn., was sentenced yesterday by United States District Court Judge Aleta Trauger to 25 years in prison yesterday for five counts of production of child pornography, announced David Rivera, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.
At his plea hearing on March 31, 2014, Kolb admitted that he had taken sexually explicit images of a young girl when she was between the ages of seven and ten years old, and that he had distributed the images on the Internet via e-mail and a photograph website. Investigators also found approximately 600 sexually explicit images and 12 videos of child pornography in Kolb’s possession.
Upon his release, Kolb will remain on supervised release for life and will be required to participate in sex offender treatment, among other conditions. Kolb had faced a mandatory minimum sentence of fifteen years in prison and up to 150 years for these crimes.
This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney S. Carran Daughtrey.
