DENVER (Lawfuel) – Robert Everett Gimer, age 53, of Adams County, Colorado, was sentenced late last week by U.S. District Court Judge Robert E. Blackburn to serve 108 months (9 years) in federal prison for possession of child pornography, U.S. Attorney Troy Eid and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent in Charge in Denver James Davis announced today. Gimer, who is free on bond, was ordered to report to a Bureau of Prisons facility after designation.
Gimer was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 4, 2007. He pled guilty before Judge Blackburn on October 12, 2007. He was sentenced by Judge Blackburn on May 16, 2008.
According to the stipulated facts outlined in the plea agreement, from May 2004 through June 2005, Gimer downloaded between 150 and 300 images of child pornography on his computer.
“Prosecutions, such as the Gimer case, sends a message to those who prey on our children that they cannot hide behind their computer,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge James Davis.
This case was investigated by the FBI.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Patricia Davies and Suneeta Hazra.
