Rapid City Man Sentenced for Production of Child Pornography

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Production of Child Pornography was sentenced on November 30, 2015, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Jesse Gallego, age 22, was sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

In November 2014, at Pine Ridge, Gallego took multiple pornographic photos of a young girl with his cell phone.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah Collins prosecuted the case.

Gallego was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
