U.S. Attorney's Office/Eastern District of Texas:

TYLER(KYTX) — A 45-year-old Grapeland, Texas man has been arrested on child exploitation charges in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.
 
Robbie Newby was indicted by a federal grand jury on Apr. 17, 2013, and charged with four counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography.  Newby went before U.S. Magistrate Judge John D. Love today for an initial appearance.
 
According to the indictment, from January to March 2012, Newby coerced or persuaded a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of such conduct.  The conduct is alleged to have occurred in Anderson County, Texas.
 
This case is being prosecuted as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.projectsafechildhood.gov.
 
If convicted, Newby faces a minimum of 15 years in federal prison for each of the exploitation charges and up to 10 years for the possession charge.
 
This case is being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security - Homeland Security Investigations DHS-HSI and the Anderson County Sheriff's Office and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathaniel Kummerfeld.
