Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Receipt of Child Pornography was sentenced on September 3, 2021 by Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Judge.

Caleb Oien, age 26, was sentenced to five years in federal prison, followed by five years supervised release.  Oien was also ordered to pay a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100, and will be required to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.

Oien was arrested and federally indicted following a Cybertip from the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children.  The Cybertip included images of child pornography of young children downloaded by Oien to his Dropbox account.  A forensic examination of Oien’s devices and Dropbox account revealed well over 600 images of child pornography of children under the age of 12.  

This case was investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.

Oien was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
