Former Orange County Deputy Sentenced For Receipt Of Child Pornography
Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. has sentenced Kevin Michael Hutchinson (36, Orlando) to 10 years in federal prison for receiving child pornography. Hutchinson was also ordered to serve a 7-year term of supervised release and to register as a sex offender.
Hutchinson was charged by criminal complaint on April 20, 2018. He pleaded guilty on May 29, 2018.
According to court documents and evidence presented at the sentencing hearing, Hutchinson initially came to the attention of law enforcement when he distributed child pornography via a mobile application. Then, just hours before a federal search warrant was executed at his home, Hutchinson received multiple images and videos of child pornography via the internet. One of the items downloaded by Hutchinson was a “guide” on how to prepare young children for sex with adults. In total, Hutchinson possessed 5,872 images and 1,625 videos of child pornography. Of those, 630 of the images and 160 of the videos depicted infants or toddlers being sexually abused.
At the time of his arrest, Hutchinson was a deputy with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. He was immediately placed on administrative leave and later terminated as a result of this case.
“The re-victimization of a child is always tragic,” said HSI Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero. “But it is particularly disturbing when the predator is someone in a position of trust and respect.”
This case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn P. Napier.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
