Two NE Men Indicted on Child Pornography Charges

dept.-of-justiceTwo Nebraska men have been charged in separate federal indictments with child pornography counts.

The U.S. Attorney’s office for Nebraska says 56-year-old James Haugh, of Grand Island, and 26-year-old Michael Nguyen, of Lincoln, were indicted earlier this week.

Both Haugh and Nguyen each face two counts — one of receiving and distributing child pornography and one of possessing child pornography.

Federal prosecutors say Haugh received and distribute child porn on different occasions from Jan. 3, 2009, to Dec. 28, 2012. Nguyen is accused of receiving and distributing child porn from Jan. 17 to March 22.

If convicted, each faces up to 30 years in federal prison.

    30 years for child pornography…but 20 for killing someone. I love our system. Don’t get me wrong…this is beyond disgusting.

    I agree with FOX. What kind of message are we sending?
    If a person MOLESTS a child, they don’t get that kind of sentence. I’m not saying its too much time. I’m asking the question why do rapists, pedophiles and killers get less time?

    • B/c child porn is a federal crime, murder or molesting is almost always a state crime :/
