IN Man Sentenced

INDIANAPOLIS - A local man was sentenced to 38 years in prison on Monday following his conviction at trial for producing child pornography with two minors. This case resulted from an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Indiana State Police, and the Indiana police departments of Greenfield, Carmel and Kokomo.
Dale E. Russell, 48, of Carmel, Ind., was sentenced May 17 in the Southern District of Indiana to 456 months in federal prison for producing child pornography. Following his release from prison, he will serve a lifetime of supervised release, during which he must have no contact with minors.

Russell was convicted after a three-day jury trial in March. During the investigation, Russell fled to Mexico from 2007 to 2009. In August 2009, Russell was expelled from Mexico and was returned to the United States. He was arrested by ICE agents when he landed in Los Angeles.

Russell was convicted of producing child pornography on four separate occasions involving two minor victims. The evidence at trial showed that Russell set up Web sites in 2004 for the victims under the pretense they were modeling. He then had various photo sessions with them and placed many of these pictures on the websites.
