A former FBI special agent, who worked on some of the bureau’s most high profile cases including the 9/11 attacks and the Oklahoma bombing, faces twenty years in prison after being arrested on child pornography charges.

Donald Sachtleben, 54, who served the FBI as a bomb technician for 25 years, was charged with possessing and distributing child pornography.

The Indiana resident was arrested after the FBI and an Internet Crimes Against Children task force began investigating another individual who was allegedly trading child pornography online.

That individual, identified as Jason Nicoson from Illinois, was arrested in January.

After searching Nicoson’s computer, investigators were able to trace illegal activity to Sachtleben’s home in Carmel.

After obtaining a search warrant on May 3, police allegedly discovered approximately 30 images and video files containing child pornography on the hard drive of his laptop computer.

Charged: Sachtleben, 54, faces thirty years behind bars if convicted of the child pornography possession and distribution charges

Police interviewed Sachtleben’s wife, who denied knowing anything about the images on her husband’s computer, according to an affidavit released today by the U.S Attorney’s office in Indiana.

The indecent images found on Sachtleben’s computer allegedly match those which were discovered on Nicoson’s.

If convicted, Sachtleben faces up to 20 years behind bars for the distribution charge and up to 10 years for the possession charge.

New York court rules viewing child pornography online not a crime

In a controversial decision that is already sparking debate around the country, the New York Court of Appeals ruled on Tuesday that viewing child pornography onlineis not a crime.

“The purposeful viewing of child pornography on the internet is now legal in New York,” Senior Judge Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick wrote in a majority decision for the court.

The decision came after Marist College professor James D. Kent was sentenced to prison in August 2009 after more than 100 images of child pornography were found on his computer’s cache.

Whenever someone views an image online, a copy of the image’s data is saved in the computer’s memory cache.

The ruling attempts to distinguish between individuals who see an image of child pornography online versus those who actively download and store such images, MSNBC reports. And in this case, it was ruled that a computer’s image cache is not the same as actively choosing to download and save an image.

“Merely viewing Web images of child pornography does not, absent other proof, constitute either possession or procurement within the meaning of our Penal Law,” Ciparick wrote in the decision.

See a copy of the court’s full ruling on the child pornography decision.

The court said it must be up to the legislature, not the courts, to determine what the appropriate response should be to those viewing images of child pornography without actually storing them. Currently, New York’s legislature has no laws deeming such action criminal.

As The Atlantic Wire notes, under current New York law, “it is illegal to create, possess, distribute, promote or facilitate child pornography.” But that leaves out one critical distinction, as Judge Ciparick stated in the court’s decision. 

“[S]ome affirmative act is required (printing, saving, downloading, etc.) to show that defendant in fact exercised dominion and control over the images that were on his screen,” Ciparick wrote. “To hold otherwise, would extend the reach of (state law) to conduct—viewing—that our Legislature has not deemed criminal.”

The case originated when Kent brought his computer in to be checked for viruses, complaining that it was running slowly. He has subsequently denied downloading the images himself.

The Douglas County Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) investigated the Larkspur, Colorado home of NBA player Chris ‘Birdman’ Andersen in connection with child pornography on Thursday.

The ICAC said they began investigating Andersen, 33, in February of this year, after they were given a tip from a law enforcement agency in California.

Pending the completion of the investigation, Andersen has been suspended from all team-related activities by the Denver Nuggets.

Sergeant Ron Hanavan told the Mail Online that the ICAC confiscated property from Andersen’s Red Hill Road estate that they believe is connected to a case.

The ICAC investigates crimes ranging from the exchange of pornographic images to child prostitution.

Sergeant Hanavan said that no arrests have been made at this time.

 ‘We need to complete a thorough investigation to determine what, if any appropriate charges would be forwarded to the District Attorney for prosecution,’ Sergeant Hanavan said to the Mail Online.

The Denver Nuggets have cut ties with Andersen pending the results.

‘The Denver Nuggets are aware of today’s media reports involving forward/center Chris Andersen. It involves a legal investigation and we are awaiting further details,’ team officials wrote in an unsigned statement to the Denver Post.

‘Per team policy, the Nuggets will not comment on any ongoing legal circumstance involving any player or employee.’

This year marks Andersen’s 10th in the NBA and his seventh season in Denver.

The forward has a history of getting involved in children’s charities, according to the Daily News.

Andersen has raised money for Mount Saint Vincent, a sanctuary for abused children, and the Alliance for Choice in Education (ACE), which provides funding for low-income families to send their children to private schools.

In 2009, he dressed up as Santa to assist in ACE’s holiday fundraising drive, since his middle name is Claus.

Sergeant Hanavan told the Mail Online that Andersen has been cooperating.

His attorney, Mark Bryant, released a statement on his behalf.

‘We need to complete a thorough investigation to determine what, if any appropriate charges would be forwarded to the District Attorney for prosecution.’

‘I believe in Chris. I would ask the citizens of Colorado to give Chris his due,’ Mr Bryant wrote to the Denver Post.

‘Like every one of us, he is presumed innocent. At the end of the day, I am confident it will be shown that he did nothing wrong.’

Andersen was previously banned from the NBA in 2006 for violating the league’s drug policy.
