Dayton man sentenced for distributing child porn via instant messaging app


A Dayton man was sentenced Tuesday to 7½ years in federal prison for distributing child pornography.

Chad Basney, 35, received the sentence in Dayton’s U.S. District Court for using an instant messaging mobile app to exchange child pornography. U.S. District Court Judge Walter Rice also ordered Basney to register as a sex offender and submit to 15 years of supervised release.

Basney exchanged eight image files and six video files with one particular other user of the same app and had conversations with multiple users, according to a prosecutor’s sentencing memorandum.

Basney solicited for nude images of minors and explicitly stated the sexual acts he would like to perform on girls as young as 6 years old, the memo said.

Investigators arrested and charged Basney after a tip from investigators in another state that Basney was involved in distributing child pornography, according to a press release.

“Each of the images and videos were created when an actual child was sexually assaulted and/or made to pose in a sexually-explicit manner for photographs,” U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman said in the release. “For victims of child pornography, the abuse never ends.”

Prosecutors had asked for a 10-year sentence due to Basney admitting to sexual contact with two minor females that could have been false admissions, according to the memo. In her sentencing memo, Basney’s defense attorney asked the judge not to consider the alleged admissions.

The case was aided by the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, the press release said.
