Wallace man sentenced 30 years for producing child pornography
"The sheer volume of the data located at Moore’s residence renders a more accurate count virtually impossible."
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A United States District Judge sentenced a 67-year-old man from Wallace to 30 years in prison for the production of child pornography.
United States Attorney Jan W. Sharp announced the sentencing of 67-year-old Richard Moore on Thursday. Moore will spend the remainder of his life on supervised release after his prison sentence.
United States District Judge John Gerrard also sentenced Moore to register as a sex offender after his prison sentence and to pay restitution of more than $100,000.
According to a press release, Wallace will serve the federal sentence concurrent with the 25-35 year sentence imposed by the Lincoln County District Court.
In October 2019, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received a report that Moore had been producing sexually explicit images of two minor children. The children reported the abuse to their parents. Investigators interviewed the children and identified Moore as the perpetrator.
On October 18, 2019, the Perkins County Sheriff and members of LSO served a search warrant at Moore’s residence. Investigators found multiple devices used to reproduce video and digital images. During the search, investigators found five monitors, five external hard drives and a collection of VHS and digitally stored pornography.
The press release states, “the sheer volume of the data located at Moore’s residence renders a more accurate count virtually impossible.”
