Christopher Hall Sentenced In Child Porn Case

FORT MYERS, FL. – Christopher Hall 45, of Bonita Springs has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for distributing child pornography. The Court also ordered him to forfeit the computers he had used to commit the offense. Hall pleaded guilty on November 30, 2015.

According to court documents, on May 9, 2014, an undercover FBI Task Force agent discovered that Hall was sharing child pornography using a peer-to-peer file sharing network. A federal search warrant was then executed at Hall’s residence and his computers were seized. 

Forensic analyses subsequently revealed more than 2,500 images of child pornography and 9 videos depicting child pornography on those computers. Hall admitted that he had lived alone and was the only person who had used his computers, and that he never shared his secured Internet connection with anyone. He stated that he began downloading child pornography ten years ago.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI Child Exploitation Task Force. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Charles D. Schmitz.
