Three Defendants Sentenced for Child Pornography Crimes

(STL.News) Three men have been sentenced in U.S. District Court for child pornography crimes, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.

“I want to thank the Tulsa Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations for their diligence that led to the prosecution of three defendants who received and distributed child sexual abuse material,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson.  “The men and women who investigate these crimes are exposed to unspeakable acts committed against children.  Their work is difficult but essential to finding justice for victims who suffered horrific abuse during the production of child pornography.”

Clayton Jacob Waldon, 51, of Tulsa, was sentenced 108 months in federal prison followed by 25 years of supervised release for distribution and possession of child pornography.  Waldon was further ordered to pay $6,000 in restitution to identified victims abused in the making of the child pornography.  In his plea agreement, Waldon admitted that he received, distributed, possessed and accessed child sexual abuse material from Oct 9, 2019, to July 25, 2020.  He also admitted that he knowingly accessed with intent to view more than 1,000 images of children being sexually abused.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Matilda Villalobos prosecuted the case.
