Jefferson County Man Indicted for Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography
Attorney General Jack Conway and United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, David Hale, jointly announce the indictment of Jeremiah Oldham, 27, of Louisville, for distributing and possessing child pornography. A federal grand jury in Louisville returned the indictment Jan. 3, 2011 following an investigation that originated with General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit.
The indictment alleges that from on or about October 28, 2009 and continuing through on or about November 24, 2009, Oldham knowingly possessed and distributed child pornography.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit. Investigators from the unit executed a search warrant at Oldham's Louisville residence in November of 2009. The case was referred for prosecution to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Kentucky in January of 2010.
Oldham turned himself over to the U.S. Marshall's office earlier this week. He was released following a detention hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2011. Oldham's case is scheduled for trial in U.S. District Court in Louisville on March 14, 2011.
Since its creation in June 2008, General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, has launched 188 investigations and seized more than 191,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet.
A charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
