GAINESVILLE, Fla. (TND) — A man has been sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for two counts of production of child pornography.

He lives in Florida but his crimes stretched across the country.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the investigation into Justin Harold Krumwiede, 42, started in March 2022.

Police in Gainesville started looking into alleged sexual abuse of an underage girl by Krumwiede.

They got a search warrant for his cellphones and computers, and hundreds of images of child pornography turned up.

Then, they were able to identify two children whose sexual abuse had been recorded by Krumwiede.

One happened in New Mexico in 2016 and the other in Texas in 2017.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office reports, “The children had since become adults and were located and interviewed by law enforcement. They confirmed they had been the victim of sexual abuse by Krumwiede and identified themselves in the images that he had created.”

Krumwiede had originally faced two federal counts of sexually assaulting children and one count of distributing child pornography.

Also, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office charged him with three counts of possession of child pornography.

Plus, Gainesville police charged him with lewd or lascivious molestation of a child, promoting a sexual performance by a child, and possession of child pornography.

After prison, Krumwiede will serve a lifetime of supervised release, and required to register as a sex offender.
