KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Warrensburg, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today (Dec. 11) for distributing, receiving and possessing child pornography.

Michael J. Craney, 48, of Warrensburg, was charged in a four-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo.

Today’s indictment alleges that Craney distributed child pornography over the Internet between March 21 and 25, 2013. Craney is also charged with two counts of receiving child pornography over the Internet on May 26 and July 7, 2013, and one count of possessing child pornography on Sept. 24, 2013.

The federal indictment also contains a forfeiture allegation, which would require Craney to forfeit to the government any property used to commit the alleged offenses, including a desktop computer, a laptop computer, three hard drives and a thumb drive.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Teresa Moore. It was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Warrensburg, Mo., Police Department.

This press release provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office – Western District of Missouri.
