from the United States District Court for the Western
District of Wisconsin. No. 15-cr-56-wmc - William M. Conley,
POSNER, Flaum, and Manion, Circuit Judges.
Warren pled guilty to transporting and possessing child
pornography and was sentenced to five years' imprisonment
and fifteen years' supervised release. The district court
entered an order modifying Warren's conditions of release
pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e). Warren challenged three
of the conditions, and the district court dismissed his
objections. We affirm.
September 18, 2003, and October 7, 2003, Warren moderated a
Yahoo! Group originally named "FunFotos4all."
Warren founded this group, established its rules, and
frequently changed the group's name to evade enforcement
of Yahoo! Group rules. During this time period, Warren posted
to the group 117 images of child pornography, including
images titled "9yococksuck[l].jpg, "
"12yoBondage.jpg, " and "14yo girl-bound and
gagged.jpg"; images of prepubescent and minor girls
exposing their genital areas and being vaginally or orally
penetrated by adult male penises; and at least one image of a
prepubescent girl being anally penetrated by a minor boy.
After images were posted to the group, Warren sorted them
into albums with titles such as "ForcedorTieduporCrying,
" "hots Toys-R-US, " and "virgin."
He also posted notices and comments to the group, including
requests for "new" images of child pornography that
had not been previously viewed on the Internet. The following
are examples of Warren's comments:
• On September 19, 2003: "I have changed the name,
and made this a restricted group in hopes that it stays open
longer. Members are now required to send 2 pictures to obtain
and keep membership."
• On September 23, 2003: "I added a ton of pics and
regrouped them all so they're easier to find. Please add
a photo or two to the 'Add new pict here' folder and
I will sort them. I think the group looks pretty good right
now but we could use some more pics. I'm rejected
[sic] any new members who haven't added pics and
I'll go through the members who are dead beats later in
the week. Post away!!!!"
• On September 24, 2003: "Anyone interested in
young braless candid, or web cam hardcore? Please post and
I'll start a folder."
• On September 28, 2003: "Added a ton, but need
some more help on pics - the photo albums are looking good
but we're a little light in some areas. CANDID: Nips
showing through shirts, swimsuits, or bras, or any personal
ones, or stuff that hasn't made the rounds and is of the
right age, lets [sic] add them to our collection.
FORCEDORTIEDORCRYING: Anyone have some good young stuff. We
don't have many crying pics yet. Any pics you want to add
to the ADDNEWPICS folder would be appreciated. GOOD WORK
EVERYONE, Your moderator."
• On September 28, 2003: "I forgot one photo album
that is really weak, VIRGINS. People have been sending me a
lot of requests so please send in your pics. Anything with
unbroken hymens, or popping a cherry for the first time is
good. Nothing will be rejected."
• On September 30, 2003: "Real High school girls
age 14-17. No pictures that have made their way around the
internet. The pics must be very sexy and will be deleted if
they are not. Send a few to join."
February 2004, agents executed a search warrant at
Warren's residence and seized his computer. A partial
review of the images on Warren's computer revealed 263
images and one video of child pornography, 135 images of
child erotica, 297 images of subjects of an undetermined age
engaging in sexually explicit conduct, and 949 images of
adult pornography. During his interview with the FBI, Warren
admitted that he was part of the forum and that the child
pornography on the computer belonged to him.
the time of his confession until 2009, Warren attended
therapy, moved back to his hometown in Wisconsin, and avoided
further legal trouble. In March 2009, Warren was charged with
transportation of child pornography, in violation of 18
U.S.C. § 2252(a)(2), and possession of child
pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. ...
