St. Louis, MO/January 13, 2018 (STL.News) – Robert Barteau was sentenced today to 10 years in prison and followed by lifetime supervised release for child pornography charges before United States District Judge Catherine D. Perry.

According to court documents, between January 1, 2014 and June 17, 2014, Barteau possessed a laptop that contained more than 677 images of child pornography where each video is considered to be equivalent of 75 images.  He received the images and videos depicting child sexual abuse from the Internet.  All these images and videos were of prepubescent minor children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and some portrayed sadistic or masochistic conduct, or other depictions of violence.  All of the children in these videos and images appeared to be under the age of twelve years old, with one child toddler aged.

Barteau, 54, of St. Louis, Missouri, pled guilty on October 12, 2017 to one felony count of possession of child pornography and has a prior sex conviction in Madison County, Illinois.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, St. Louis County Police Department and St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorney Colleen Lang and Investigator Donya Jackson are handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
