Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Yankton, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on four counts of Production of Child Pornography.

Jason Sejnoha, age 43, was indicted on October 5, 2021.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on October 13, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 30 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, life of supervised release, and up to $400 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that between May 6, 2021, and August 12, 2021, Sejnoha knowingly used three minor females and one minor male to produce visual depictions of sexually explicit conduct, knowing that such visual depictions would be produced with materials that had been made out of state.

The charges are merely accusations and Sejnoha is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
