Roseville Man Pleads Guilty in Child Porn Case




SACRAMENTO, Calif. - This past week, two defendants pleaded guilty and one was sentenced for child-exploitation charges, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced. These cases are the product of investigations by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, a federally and state-funded task force managed by the Sacramento Sheriff's Department with agents from federal, state, and local agencies. The Sacramento ICAC investigates online child exploitation crimes, including child pornography, enticement, and sex trafficking. Assistant United States Attorney Kyle Reardon is prosecuting the cases.

ROSEVILLE MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY
Daniel Harrison McGrath, 58, of Roseville, pleaded guilty today to possession of more than 3,000 images and videos of child pornography. The Roseville Police Department participated in this investigation.

According to court documents, on April 4, 2012, McGrath's granddaughter was found dead in his home. McGrath's daughter, who is the child's mother, has been charged in Placer County with the death. During an audio and videotaped interview about the death, McGrath was told that a search warrant would be executed and that his computers would be taken as part of the investigation. McGrath said that he had "sensitive" information on the computer, and then he admitted that he had files of child pornography on the computers. A search warrant was obtained by Roseville police detectives, and a forensic review of the seized computer evidence identified more than 3,000 images and videos of child pornography. These images and videos were contained on the disconnected computer hard drive, as well as on multiple CDs created by McGrath. Some of these images and videos showed prepubescent children, sadistic and masochistic conduct, and infants.

McGrath is scheduled to be sentenced on September 13, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. He faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
