Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Christopher M. Case, 33, has been charged with two counts of producing child pornography and two counts of sending obscene material to a child. The indictment makes the following allegations:

– From Dec. 1, 2011, to Dec. 28, 2011, Case enticed a 15-year-old child to engage in a sexual act for the purpose of making a video to be transmitted on the Internet.
– From Dec. 24, 2011, to Jan. 23, 2012, Case enticed a 13-year-old child to engage in a sexual act for the purpose of making a video to be transmitted on the Internet.
– On Dec. 29, 2011, Case sent a video of himself masturbating to the 13-year-old victim
– On Dec. 31, 2011, Case sent a video of himself masturbating to the 13-year-old victim.

At the time of the crimes, Case was a registered sex offender. He was convicted in Saline County, Kan., in May 2003 on a charge of attempted aggravated indecent solicitation of a child.

If convicted on the federal charges, he faces a penalty of not less than 25 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each of the charges of producing child pornography; and a penalty of not less than 10 years and a fine up to $250,000 on each of the charges of sending obscene material to a child. The Wichita Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Kansas Attorney General’s office investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart and Steve Karrer of the Kansas Attorney General’s Office are prosecuting.

    “…charged with producing child pornography while he was committed to a sexual predator unit at Larned State Hospital, U.S…” The question here should be what is going on at LMHC that one could obtain such devices being locked up?

    • Good Question

      My only thought is that he was not in a residential lock-down unit at the hospital…Either way…scary situation.

    My guess would be in dealing with these distribution cases there is a lot of media data to be sifted through and charges just came to light. Perhaps a misleading title. Filth no matter what.

      Misleading title…? Good point!

    LMHC should have been at fault for letting him use a computer in the first place

    Does anyone else notice that “Uncle Thomas” seems to have an opinion about anything and everything that is published on Hays Post?? GET A LIFE!!!

      Wha…I still volunteer 40 hours per week and retired at the age of 45! Everything I comment on I have personally had experience with…yes everything! 25 years of consulting gives one experience. I worked six days per week for 25 years…70-80 hours per week while you were probably collecting welfare!

    I forgot to mention that my comment did not necessarily pertain to this story. Just tired of seeing a know it all sitting on their ass having nothing better to do than read and comment on this site. I would like to also thank Hays Post for allowing disrespectful and inappropriate comments to be made on any and every article. Whatever happened to just publishing stories for public knowledge? There is absolutely no need for a “comments” section PERIOD! I for one will no longer visit this site until much needed improvements are made. I hope others will do do as well.

    Residents of the Sexual Predator Treatment Program (SPTP) do not have access to the Internet, and are forbidden to have personal cell phones. The alleged crimes committed by the resident referred to in your story were committed on a contraband cell phone. But I would like to elaborate on the policies in place now at the SPTP.
    The SPTP has several measures in place to deter a resident from reoffending while in the program. Residents are restricted from possessing electronic items that have the capability of an Internet connection. Residents are not allowed to have personal computers or cell phones. Residents do have limited access to computers which are located on the resident units, but Internet access is not provided. When the computers are used, SPTP staff are present to provide supervision of the residents. Residents are limited
    to only word processing to complete therapy and legal projects, and to access to an electronic legal library.
    The residents do have access to assigned telephones for resident use only to allow them to call family and friends. Phone access may be individually restricted if the resident misuses the privilege. This restriction only occurs following a formal notification. An internal appeal process of the restriction is afforded the resident.
    Incoming and outgoing resident mail is handled and monitored by Safety/Security Property Officers. This process is intended to reduce the probability that contraband will be introduced into the facility. Visitors to the facility must be vetted through an approval process and are not allowed to exchange property with residents. Visitors are required to store personal property in provided lockers and must pass a metal detector test prior to the visit.
    Residents would only have access to the internet via a contraband device (e.g., a cell phone, etc.). Such contraband has a history of being introduced into secure facilities such as prisons, jails, and other facilities. As a result of such incidents, SPTP now has taken additional measures to identify contraband sent through the mail, potentially brought in through visitors and employees, as well as contraband created by residents.

      These rules are only as strong as the paper they are printed on, and apparently the staff really “dropped the ball” in this situation. How sad for these children, and how incredibly disappointing that the above would be your response. Where’s the compassion?

  • Perfection

    LOL!!! Yet again, Uncle Thomas is so correct on his information! Just reading his uneducated and ridiculous posts makes my day! Thank you very much for your stupidity that brings a smile to my face on a daily basis!

    Almost forgot….I am happy that my tax dollars go to you while you “volunteer” aka sit on Hays Post for 40 hours a week trying to make other people’s lives just as miserable as yours! It is definitely wrong, but I can’t help but to laugh at you!
