CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Parkersburg man was convicted this week on multiple charges related to child pornography.
Daniel Roy Mace was found guilty on 15 felony charges, including 12 counts of receipt of child pornography as well as counts of distribution of child pornography, possession of child pornography depicting prepubescent minors and witness tampering.
Authorities during an August 2016 search found Mace downloading child pornography on file-sharing services previously discovered by authorities. Law enforcement discovered 80 sexually explicit videos, including eight videos a detective downloaded before the search.
After his arrest, Mace attempted to persuade a witness to provide a false alibi for him during a January 2019 testimony.
U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart said Mace faces at least five years for each receipt count and the distribution count and up to 20 years on the other counts. He will also be placed on supervised release between five years and life after being released from prison and will be required to register as a sex offender.
Mace’s sentencing date is July 8.
