Child Porn Collector Gets 12-Year Prison Sentence

SPOKANE, Wash. - On Friday Michael C. Ormsby, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that Donald Duane Holloway, age 51, of Valley, Washington was
sentenced to 12-years in prison. After release from prison, Donald Holloway will be under court
supervision for the rest of his life.

An Internet Service Provider in California reported to authorities that a certain account in
Valley, Washington, was being used to transmit child pornography over the Internet. On
December 22, 2009, a federal search warrant was served at Donald Holloway's home in Valley,
Washington. Federal agents seized three computers, digital media, and printed images of child
pornography. Later examination showed the electronic evidence to contain more than 10 but less than 150 images of child pornography.

Donald Holloway was arrested December 22, 2009, and has been detained since. Donald
Holloway was then serving a lifetime term of court supervision based upon a prior federal
conviction for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. On January 27, 2011, Donald
Holloway pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. His sentence was enhanced based
upon his prior Stevens County convictions for third and second degree child molestation.

Michael C. Ormsby, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, said, "Our
dedicated law enforcement officers are to be commended for networking across the country to
make this and other communities safer. Repeat offenders have proven that they have no place in our neighborhoods."

This case is being brought as part of Project Safe Childhood. In 2006, the Department of
Justice created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from
online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices, Project Safe
Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.projectsafechildhood.gov. The Project Safe Childhood (PSC) Initiative has five major components:


• Integrated federal, state, and local efforts to investigate and prosecute child exploitation cases, and to identify and rescue child victims
• Participation of PSC partners in coordinated national initiatives
• Increased federal enforcement in child pornography and enticement cases
• Training of federal, state, and local law enforcement agents
• Community awareness and educational programs

To report these crimes, visit www.cybertipline.com or call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's hotline at 1-800-843-5678.

This investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Seattle Police Department, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. This case was prosecuted by Stephanie Lister, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington.
