MADISON, WI—John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Kyle Lutz, 29, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Lynn S. Adelman to 15 years in federal prison, to be followed by 15 years of supervised release, for producing child pornography. Lutz pleaded guilty to this crime on February 13, 2013, and has remained in custody since his guilty plea.
On November 26, 2012, Lutz was charged in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, in a related case with six counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child, two counts of child enticement, and one count of exposing a child to harmful material. Evidence discovered in the Jefferson County case, as well as evidence retrieved by a forensic examination of Lutz’s computer, revealed that Lutz had produced child pornography using an iPod Touch on October 21, 2012, and November 4, 2012.
Additionally, the evidence revealed that Lutz distributed and possessed child pornography from September to November 2012. Lutz admitted in a statement he made to the FBI that he had been collecting child pornography for approximately seven years.
The charges against Lutz were the result of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau Investigation and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie S. Pfluger.
