PEORIA (25 News Now) - A federal judge has sentenced a Peoria man to 15 years in prison for receiving child pornography while on supervised release for a similar crime.

When David Robertson II, 39, of the 500 block of Voris Street is released from prison for this latest offense, he’ll spend the rest of his life on supervised release.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in a news release said Robertson was on supervised release after serving 10 years in prison for a 2010 federal case in which he had in his possession “obscene visual representations of the sexual abuse of children.”

The news release said that In September of 2021, probation officers made a routine, unannounced home visit. Authorities said Robertson admitted to possessing child pornography and he turned over a mobile phone and tablet.

In all, investigators said Robertson had in his possession 52 videos and 1,680 images of child pornography.

U.S. District Judge James E. Shadid sentenced Robertson September 9.

Robertson was indicted in December of 2021 and pleaded guilty in March of this year. He’s been jailed since his arrest.

The Peoria County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Secret Service investigated the case.
