Judge grants Neosho businessman more time to file objections to pre-sentence investigaiton

A federal judge today granted the lawyers for Neosho businessman Blake Altman extra time to respond to his pre-sentence investigation report.

Altman, 33, pleaded guilty January 4 to receiving and distributing child pornography.

Altman admitted that he received and distributed child pornography over the Internet from Aug. 14 to Oct. 1, 2014. Law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Altman’s residence after he was identified in an undercover investigation into the distribution of child pornography via peer-to-peer file-sharing software. Undercover officers downloaded images and videos of child pornography from Altman’s computer. Officers seized Altman’s laptop computer, which contained images and videos of child pornography.

Under federal statutes, Altman is subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison without parole, up to a sentence of 20 years in federal prison without parole.

More information about Altman's crimes was included in a motion for detention filed by the Assistant U. S. Attorney, which can be found at this link.
