Foster Dad To Serve 20 Years In Prison For Production Of Child Porn

SPOKANE, Wash. - Michael C. Ormsby, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that James E. Guinn, Jr., age 71, a resident of Stevens County, was
sentenced to 240 months in federal prison followed by a life term of court supervision for
production of child pornography.

In March of 2011, the Stevens County Sheriff's Office began an investigation of James E. Guinn, Jr., concerning an alleged rape of minor children. The Stevens County Sheriff's Office seized Guinn's computer and hard drive from his home in Marcus, Washington.

Subsequent forensic examinations and interviews of minor victims by Stevens County Detectives and the Spokane Federal Bureau of Investigation proved that he had raped and sexually molested several of the minor children he had fostered and that he had produced child pornography images of his victims.

In support of the lengthy sentence given by the Court, Ormsby said "Crimes against children are very serious, particularly when the one committing them is in a position of trust."

James E. Guinn was charged by indictment in federal court with production of child pornography. He pleaded guilty to the charge on September 13, 2012. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood (PSC). This Department of Justice program is a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse.

This program is led by the United States Attorney's 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 PSC, please visit www.projectsafechildhood.gov. The 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;

1. Participation of PSC partners in coordinated national initiatives;

2. Increased federal enforcement in child pornography and enticement cases;

3. Training of federal, state, and local law enforcement agents

4. 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 Stevens County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This case was prosecuted by Stephanie Lister, Assistant
United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington (11-CR-139-LRS).
