PC Man Who Used Facebook to get Child Porn Sentenced to 10 Years

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - A Panama City man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Thursday for production, receipt and distribution of child pornography. 

In May 2016, law enforcement officers received information regarding the online sexual exploitation of a 15-year-old girl and an investigation determined that 36-year-old David Michael Hobby Rossner and the victim were chatting on Facebook.

Following sexually detailed chats on Facebook, Rossner successfully solicited the 15-year-old girl to take nude images of herself and then directed her to send them to him, federal prosecutors wrote in a news release. Rossner also previously solicited photos from other underage girls online, officials wrote.

The investigation also uncovered that Rossner received and distributed child pornography using the social media platform Kik. A forensic review of Rossner’s cellular telephone and online chats revealed dozens of images and videos of child pornography, including girls under the age of 10.

Rossner pled guilty on November 30, 2016.
