Foster Sentenced To Federal Prison For Child Porn Possession

(KCCR) — A Pierre man is sentenced Monday in federal court to over four and half years in federal prison on child pornography charges. U-S District Judge Roberto Lange sentenced 36 year-old David Foster to 57 months in federal prison which will be followed by five years of supervised release. Foster must also pay 130-thousand 500 dollars in restitution and five-thousand dollars to the Domestic Trafficking Victim’s Fund. Foster was indicted by a federal grand jury in January of 2018. He pled guilty in May of this year. A Homeland Security undercover operation targeting chat rooms and child sexual exploitation discovered Foster using the Kik messaging app. The agent conducting the investigation recorded activity in a group on the app called “No Limits”. The group was found to be sharing images and video of child pornography and exploitation. A search warrant was executed in Pierre in May of 2017 on Foster’s cell phone. That phone had over 47-hundred images and 100 videos of child pornography. Foster was immediately turned over to the U-S Marshals service to begin serving his sentence.
