Wyoming man sentenced in child exploitation case

Casper, Wyo. — A Wyoming man was sentenced for possessing child pornography and violating his supervised release agreement related to the same charge.

Acting United States Attorney Bob Murray for the District of Wyoming and Eric Balliet, Deputy Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Denver made the announcement.

Kyle Doussett, 49, of Casper, Wyoming, was sentenced by Federal District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson to ten years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised release. Doussett was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment fee and may be ordered to pay restitution, to be determined at a later date.

Doussett appeared before Federal District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson on June 1, 2021 and pled guilty to the sole charge in the indictment. His conviction came after a manager at the Casper Re-entry Center (CRC), where Doussett was an inmate, found a cell phone belonging to Dousette that contained images and video of girls less than 12 years of age in provocative poses and performing sexual acts.

“Doussett has clearly demonstrated his inability to stop this type of predatorial sexual behavior so 10 years in prison is a just sentence. His actions contribute to an ongoing problem of child exploitation where children are enticed into producing sexually explicit material. Our office is grateful that our federal law enforcement partners dedicate resources to identifying the victims of sexual predators,” said Acting United States Attorney, Bob Murray.

This crime was investigated by HSI. Doussett was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Christyne M. Martens.

HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free tip line at 1-866-347-2423 or by completing its online tip form. Both are staffed around the clock. From outside the U.S. and Canada, callers should dial 802-872-6199. Hearing impaired users can call TTY 802-872-6196.

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 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 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.
