Child Porn Distributor Sent to Federal Prison

An Omaha man is facing seven years in prison for distribution of child pornography.

After serving that sentence, Michael Partain, 44, will be on supervised release for five years and be required to register as a sex offender.

This is a federal case and the sentence carries no possible parole.

Authorities say that on two occasions, Partain distributed child pornography videos to undercover FBI agents. Some of the videos involved victims under the age of five.

On August 29, 2012, agents assigned to the Omaha FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at Partain’s residence. The agents recovered 109 files of child pornography. Twenty-seven videos involved a victim under the age of five. Sixty-one videos involved victims between the ages of six and 10.

The case was investigated by the Omaha Cyber Crimes Task Force and was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
