Oceanside man to serve 24 years in child porn case

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An Oceanside man who utilized file-sharing programs to download hundreds of images of child pornography was sentenced to 24 1/2 years in federal prison and must register as a sex offender.

David Grummer, 44, was convicted in June of 18 counts of receipt of child pornography and five counts of possession of child porn and was sentenced late Friday to 295 months in federal custody, said U.S. Attorney Laura E. Duffy.

According to court documents and trial testimony, Grummer - who worked at a hazardous waste recycling facility - was selling banned chemicals on the Internet.

The Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Criminal Enforcement and the FBI searched his residence, and forensic examiners discovered child pornography on a seized computer hard drive, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The FBI Cyber Squad then conducted an investigation that led to a second search of Grummer's residence and the discovery of hundreds of images of child pornography on five separate hard drives, according to prosecutors.

Additional forensic analysis revealed Grummer utilized file-sharing programs to search for and download images depicting the sexual exploitation of children, prosecutors said.
