Kansas woman indicted for coercing minor to produce pornography following HSI investigation

WICHITA, Kan. – A federal grand jury returned an indictment charging a woman with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child – production of child pornography, one count of distribution of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography following an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

According to court documents, Brandi Snyder, 34, of Americus, is accused of persuading and coercing a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction, and of allegedly possessing and distributing child pornography.

HSI is investigating the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Molly Gordon is prosecuting the case.

HSI is a directorate of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 6,800 special agents assigned to 225 cities throughout the United States, and 86 overseas locations in 55 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.
