Canyon Country Man Sentenced to 10 Years in Federal Prison for Possession of Child Pornography on His Mobile Phone

SANTA ANA, California– A registered sex offender from Canyon Country has been sentenced to a decade in federal prison and ordered to serve 40 years of supervised release for his conviction pleading guilty to one count of possession of child pornography.

Paul Frederick Kampmeyer Jr., 45, was sentenced on April 8 by United States District Judge Josephine L. Stanton after he pleaded guilty last May and admitted possessing over a hundred images of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Kampmeyer, who was previously convicted in state court of possessing child pornography, used his cell phone in 2011 to send a text message that contained a sexually explicit image of a man and a young child. During the execution of a federal search warrant in 2012, agents seized two mobile phones with approximately 124 images of child pornography that had been transmitted over the Internet. One image found on Kampmeyer's phone included a sexually explicit photo involving a young toddler engaging in sexual acts with an adult male.

Kampmeyer will be ordered to pay restitution to the victims.

“Possessing child pornography is not a victimless crime,” said United States Attorney Eileen M. Decker. “Real children were raped when these images were produced, and every time the images are distributed or possessed the child is re-victimized. The demand for these disturbing images leads to victimization, so my Office is committed to shutting down the illicit market for these images.”

This case was the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
