Brian Fuchs, 49, Lawrence, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted investigators found approximately 2,000 images and 200 videos containing child pornography on his computer.

The FBI used an internet peer-to-peer file-sharing program to download child pornography from Fuchs before serving a search warrant at his home.

McAllister commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Flannigan for their work on the case.
