United States Attorney Laura E. Duffy announced that David Michael McElmurry was convicted today after a three-day jury trial before United States District Court Judge John A. Houston. A federal jury returned verdicts convicting McElmurry of one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. McElmurry faces a fifteen-year mandatory-minimum sentence.
According to evidence presented at trial, McElmurry used the screen name “Teentrade” on a file-sharing program where he had over 41,000 files of child pornography available for sharing. Among his collection were children as young as infants involved in sexual conduct with adults and other children. The jury also heard testimony about his previous law enforcement contact from 2006, when he stated he was addicted to child pornography, had been viewing it since he was 15 years old, used encryption and traded files online.
The Court scheduled a sentencing hearing on November 28, 2011, at 8:30 a.m.
Case Number: 10CR5096-H
