A Dyer man has been sentenced to more than 12 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to accessing an Internet-connected computer system with intent to view child pornography, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana said.

James Struensee, 48, was sentenced to 150 months imprisonment and 10 years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. He was also ordered to pay a fine of $40,000.

“According to documents in this case, in 2015 Struensee logged into a website using a TOR browser to access child pornography involving prepubescent children,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. “Struensee admitted to, over the course of years, searching, accessing, and viewing over 200 images of child pornography. In 2000, he was convicted of receipt of child pornography (via U.S. mail) in the Northern District of Illinois.”

The case was investigated by the FBI GRIT Task Force with the assistance of the Indiana State Police.
