Defendant was previously convicted of transporting child pornography

 

DALLAS — Following a three-day trial before U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey, a federal jury has convicted Hugh Michael Glenn, 47, of Dallas, Texas, of two child pornography offenses.  The announcement was made today by U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.

Specifically, this morning, the jury convicted Glenn of one count of transporting and shipping child pornography and one count of accessing with intent to view child pornography.  Glenn faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in federal prison for the access count, 40 years in federal prison for the transportation count, and a $250,000 fine.  Glenn will remain in custody pending sentencing, which is set for November 20, 2017. 

            The government presented evidence at trial that on August 1, 2016, Glenn transported child pornography by uploading an image of child pornography using Chatstep.  Law enforcement obtained Glenn’s laptop computer, which contained the transported image and over 2,000 other images of child pornography.  Glenn confessed to law enforcement that he had gone to chatrooms and viewed child pornography on the Internet.   

 

            In 2003, Glenn was convicted in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas for transporting child pornography.  In that case, he was sentenced to ninety-seven months of imprisonment.

 

This case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by U.S. Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/.  For more information about internet safety education, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc/ and click on the tab “resources.”

 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Dallas Police Department investigated this case.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Camille Sparks and Jamie L. Hoxie are in charge of the prosecution
