A former Oxford resident has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison after being convicted of receiving child pornography.
Federal attorneys say 37-year-old David Baumbach will be under supervision for the rest of his life even after he is released from prison. He will be required to register as a sex offender. Also, Baumbach must pay $5,000 in restitution and attorney fees for three unidentified victims.
The state Attorney General’s Office actually broke the case when investigators in August of 2013 noticed a computer IP address that offered to share files that had been flagged in an on-going child pornography investigation. Investigators determined that the computer offered to share 812 different files, 172 of which had been classified as “notable” by law enforcement.
Investigators eventually seized a computer and numerous hard drives from Baumbach’s residence in Oxford, discovering more than a thousand files featuring child sexual exploitation.
The investigation also uncovered that Baumbach had been on parole from Colorado, where he had been registered as a sex offender after being convicted of child sexual assault.
