From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, KY - (Mon 26 Jun 2017) - A Louisville man was sentenced Thursday, June 22, 2017, in United States District Court, by United States District Judge David J. Hale, to 97 months in prison followed by 15 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine for receiving child pornography announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.
According to a Plea Agreement, defendant John Treufeldt, 52, admitted to using an Internet account traced to his residence on Bridlevista Road, in Louisville, that connected to an online community of individuals who regularly sent and received child pornography via a website that operated on an anonymous online network. According to data obtained from logs monitored by law enforcement and other sources, a user with the user name "Elric" registered an account on February 25, 2015. The user "Elric" was logged into the website for a total of 20 hours, one minute and 10 seconds between the dates of December 4, 2014, and February 28, 2015. Treufeldt admitted to accessing videos and images that depicted and contained child pornography.
On March 15, 2016, law enforcement officials executed a federal Search Warrant
on Treufeldt's residence in Louisville. Treufeldt admitted to using the screen name "Elric" on websites for the purpose of viewing child pornography. Later forensic examination of Treufeldt's
computer revealed the presence of thousands of images (still and video) depicting children engaged in sexually explicit behavior.
Assistant United States Attorney Jo E. Lawless prosecuted this case. The FBI investigated as part of a national operation - "Pacifier."
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
