Deputy receives 'Project Safe Childhood Award'

Westminster, Carroll County, Maryland; April 20, 2016 ---- On Friday, April 15th, 2016, the U.S. Attorney’s Office presented Corporal Chris McMillen with the Project Safe Childhood Award. This award was presented to him in recognition of the Child Advocacy and Investigation Center’s (CCAIC) outstanding work which led to the arrest and prosecution of a man for making and distributing child pornography. Cpl McMillen was the CCAIC supervisor during this investigation.

In May, 2014, CCAIC received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding the manufacture, possession and distribution of child pornography by an online user. The suspect, whose identity was unknown,  was using a website called “Photo Bucket” to upload the videos he was creating with his victim. Investigation led CCAIC Detectives to an address on Oak Street in Manchester, where they identified the suspect as Jesse Kuchta, a 26 year old (at the time of the incident). Kuchta was arrested and charged. 

After his arrest, the decision was made to decline local prosecution so that the case could be heard in Federal Court, where Kuchta was found guilty of possessing, manufacturing, and distributing child pornography. He ultimately received a mandatory minimum 30 year prison sentence.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office is extremely proud of the efforts of Cpl McMillen and all of the CCAIC detectives.
