“On December 19, 2018, investigators executed a search warrant at Bebris’ residence, and an examination of Bebris’ computer revealed images of pornography involving children ranging in age from approximately one to fifteen years old,” prosecutors said in a press release.
He was found guilty and sentenced last year to five years in prison for distribution of child pornography, but that sentence was postponed as his defense team appealed a judge’s decision not to suppress evidence in the case. Court records show the appeals court in August said the judge made the correct ruling and was ordered to report to prison.
“Three days before Bebris was to report to prison, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Bebris’ residence and recovered a substantial amount of recently-downloaded child pornography, including depictions of children as young as three years of age,” the U.S. Attorney said.
Bebris will also have to spend 10 years on supervised release and register as a sexual offender.
