Child Pornography Trafficker Gets Decade in Prison

The government had described 29-year old Tyler L. Foote of Mattoon, Illinois as an avid collector of extremely violent child pornography. He has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. Senior U.S. District Judge Michael M. Mihm ordered the sentencing.

Mihm further ordered that Foote remains on supervised release for a period of 10 years following completion of his prison sentence. In the court filings, the government had represented that Foote is a collector of extremely violent child abuse images. Sexual violence against minor children, including infants, bestiality, bondage, and urination were included in the images and video files.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elly M. Peirson and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Shannon O’Brien of the Illinois Attorney General’s Office prosecuted the case. Illinois Attorney General’s Office, Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Mattoon Police Department investigated the charges.
