CASPER, Wyo. — A Cheyenne resident was sentenced to 97 months’ imprisonment for
access with intent to view child pornography, according to a release by the U.S. Justice Department.

David Robert Land, 34, was sentenced by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal on Wednesday, June 12.

“According to court documents, a Cybertip was sent to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) regarding an IP address and an email address that was downloading pre/early pubescent pornographic images,” the release said. “The investigation led officers to Land, who is a registered sex offender. Investigators found numerous images of child sexual abuse material on Land’s phone. He pleaded guilty to the sole count of the indictment on Jan. 16.”

The crime was investigated by DCI and the case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christyne M. Martens.
