Ellsworth Man Indicted On Child Pornography Charges
ELLSWORTH, SD -

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Ellsworth Air Force Base man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Receipt of Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography.

Colby Haggerty, 22, was indicted on May 20, 2014.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on May 21, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
 
The penalty upon conviction is a mandatory minimum of 5 years’ imprisonment up to 20 years’ imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine, lifetime of supervised release, and a $100 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment charges that between August 2009 and April 2014, at Ellsworth Air Force Base, Haggerty knowingly received and possessed computers files containing images of child pornography.

The charges are merely accusations and Haggerty is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The investigation was conducted by the South Dakota Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce.   Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins is prosecuting the case. 

Haggerty was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. A trial date has not been set.
