FBI and Eugene Police Arrest Barret R. Spangler in Child Pornography Investigation

At about 7:15 am on Friday, May 5, 2017, FBI agents and Eugene Police officers arrested Barret Russell Spangler, age 39, at his home in Eugene. A federal criminal complaint charges Spangler with one count of possession and receipt of child pornography. The arrest was without incident.

Spangler is scheduled to make his initial appearance before a Magistrate Judge on May 5, 2017, at 1:30 p.m. at the U.S. District Courthouse in Eugene.

A complaint is only an accusation of a crime. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Assistant United States Attorney Amy E. Potter is prosecuting this case.
