Corfu man gets 10-year prison sentence for distributing child porn

Press release:

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced Thursday that David Woods, 37, of Corfu, who was convicted of distribution of child pornography, was sentenced to 120 months (10 years) in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Carol G. Bridge, who handled the case, stated that Woods used an online bulletin board system designed for viewing and sharing images and videos of child pornography. Using the e-mail address [email protected], the defendant collected and distributed over 12,000 videos and 20,000 images of child pornography. Many of the images portrayed children, including infants and toddlers, being subjected to bondage and rape by adults.

On March 6, 2012, the defendant uploaded eight videos depicting young female victims. On the bulletin board, Woods stated “I hope this gets me into VIP, but even if it doesn’t, I figured I would share.” On April 17, 2013, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at the defendant’s residence and seized a laptop and other digital equipment containing the images of child pornography.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero.

In this day and age of cyber-forensics, how is it that the originator of the digital media isn't immediately traced? Virtually all digital media has metadata. I'm sure that metadata can be removed, but isn't it possible to trace the original point of posting on the web, regardless of using a proxy? I want to see the people who create the child porn in prison far more than the peepers. Rarely do I ever read about that happening.

An investigator told me once many of the images traded by the peepers is years if not decades old, which makes it hard to trace. Also, a lot originates overseas.
