A 33-year-old Kalispell man will spend five years on probation after pleading guilty to receipt of obscenity.
Dustin Roy Gilpin was sentenced before Chief U.S. District Judge Dana L. Christensen in Missoula on Thursday.
The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office seized two computers at Gilpin’s residence in July 2012 after a Madison County deputy sheriff determined an IP address in Kalispell was offering known child pornography files for download via the Internet.
The computers contained image files depicting obscene matters of indecent character, specifically children engaged in sexual conduct. Some of the files were associated with the peer-to-peer file sharing program LimeWire. An examiner determined the files were created between September 2011 and March 2012 on one computer, and between May 2012 and July 2012 on the other.
