1 min read

United States Attorney Bob Murray announced today that DANIEL HENDRICKS, 33, of Casper, Wyoming was indicted by a federal grand jury for one count of possession of child pornography and four counts of production of child pornography. Hendricks appeared for an arraignment hearing before Chief United States Magistrate Judge Kelly H. Rankin and pleaded not guilty to the charges. A trial has been set for January 31, 2022, and Hendricks was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals Service.

The indictment alleges that on or about October 15, 2021, Hendricks knowingly possessed material containing images of child pornography that and on or before May 30, 2021, knowingly used a minor on four occasions to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct. If convicted on all counts, Hendricks faces 15 years to life imprisonment and five years to life of supervised release. He could also be ordered to pay a $5,000 special assessment pursuant to the Victims of Sex Trafficking Act of 2015 and a $100 special assessment on each count. In addition, he could pay up to a $50,000 special assessment and mandatory restitution of not less that $3,000 per requesting victim pursuant to the Amy, Vicky, and Andy Child Pornography Victim Assistance Act of 2018.

This crime is being investigated by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and Homeland Security Investigations. Assistant United States Attorney Christyne M. Martens is prosecuting the case.  

An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
