Daniel Ellsworth Sentenced for distributing child pornography

Registered sex offender, Daniel Ellsworth Janssen heads to prison after distributing child pornography

CORPUS CHRISTI, TS (STL.News) A 28-year-old Corpus Christi man has been ordered to federal prison after he admitted to sending photos depicting the sexual exploitation of children, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

Daniel Ellsworth Janssen pleaded guilty Oct. 22, 2020.

U.S. District Judge David S. Morales ordered him to serve a 204-month sentence.  At the hearing, the court heard that Janssen had been on probation for attempted indecency with a child when he was arrested for this federal crime.  Following his 17-year federal prison term, Janssen will serve 15 years on supervised release during which time the court can impose a number of special conditions designed to protect children and prohibit the use of the internet. Again, he has been ordered to register as a sex offender.  He must also pay $3,000 in restitution for each of the three identified victims.

Authorities had linked Janssen to an e-mail and IP address that was accessing child pornography.  Law enforcement conducted a search, at which time they seized multiple electronic devices from Janssen’s Corpus Christi residence.  A forensic examination later revealed over 1,500 images and videos of child pornography on those devices.
