Mill Creek man sentenced to 22 years for producing child porn

Phillip S. Allen, a 58-year-old Mill Creek man, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to 22 years in prison for producing child pornography, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Allen came to the attention of law enforcement in 2010, when they served a search warrant at the Bloomington, Ind. home of a person who was being investigated for distribution of child pornography. Investigators determined that the Indiana resident had sent child pornography to Allen’s email address, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

In July 2011, federal agents served a search warrant at Allen’s Mill Creek home and seized a computer and two external hard drives. Authorities found pornographic pictures of Allen’s young relatives, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The same images have been found in three separate investigations of possession of child pornography across the country.

Allen pleaded guilty to the charges in December.

“This defendant molested young relatives, and then victimized them again by distributing sexually explicit images of them to others via the internet,” U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan said in the news release.  “It is hard to imagine more depraved conduct, which will haunt these young children for years to come. “
