Woodstock GA Arrested

Woodstock Man with Massive Collection of Child Pornography Sent to Federal Prison for a Decade
Mienscow Collected Over 100,000 Images and Videos of Child Pornography
ATLANTA, GA—ROBERT MIENSCOW, 53, of Woodstock, Georgia, was sentenced today by United States District Court Judge Thomas W. Thrash for receiving thousands of images and videos on his computer showing the sexual abuse of young children.

United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said: “Child pornography collectors quietly live among us in neighborhoods and communities of North Georgia, and they are incredibly dangerous. They are a threat to themselves, their families, and the safety of our children. Sometimes a case is particularly disturbing when investigators find out that an individual is specifically collecting brutal images of infants and toddlers. This defendant targeted such images and videos for his massive collection, living an apparent double life which now results in a decade in prison.”

MIENSCOW was sentenced to 10 years in prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system. He is also required to register as a sex offender upon his release from custody. MIENSCOW pleaded guilty to the charges in November 2010.

According to United States Attorney Yates and the information presented in court: In January 2009, the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant on a child pornography offender in Chicago, Illinois. By examining that offender's computer, the FBI determined that the offender in Chicago had been trading child pornography with MIENSCOW. Upon further investigation, an examination of MIENSCOW's computer showed a highly organized collection of over 100,000 images and videos of child pornography, some of which showed the sexual abuse of infants and toddlers. The FBI's examination also showed that MIENSCOW had chatted online with numerous other individuals with a sexual interest in children and traded child pornography images and videos with those persons over the internet.
