Plymouth Native Sentenced to Seven Years in Federal Child Porn Case

A 26-year-old Denver man was sentenced to 85 months in jail after pleading guilty last summer to a count of receiving child pornography over the Internet.

A Plymouth native and current Denver man has been sentenced to serve more than seven years in a federal prison for reciving, via his computer, thousands of images of child pornography. 

Russell Ronald Brimeyer, 26, was sentenced Wednesday morning in Minneapolis by United States District Court Judge Patrick J. Schlitz. 

Brimeyer submitted a guilty plea to one count of receipt of child pornography back on June 26, 2012. He was charged on May 7, 2012. 

According to a news release form the U.S. Department of Justice's Minnesota office: 

Brimeyere admitted via his plea agreement that on April 15, 2009, he received by way of his computer thousands of images of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. He received those images via a peer-to-peer fil sharing program. 

Authorities discovered the images on Brimeyer's computer, and on other media devies, in September 2009, during the execution of a search warrant at his residence. 

The case was the result of an investigation by the Minnesota Cyber Crimes Task Force, which is sponsored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Clifford B. Wardlaw.
