A U.S. District Judge on Wednesday sentenced a man from Jefferson County, Missouri to nine years in prison for possessing and sharing child pornography with his wife.
The judge also ordered David J. Dohrman to pay $6,000 in restitution to victims who appeared in the images. Dohrman’s wife, Jacquelin Michelle Dohrman, was sentenced to seven years in prison last month.
52-year-old David Dohrman and 49-year-old Jacquelin Dohrman pleaded guilty in June to one count of possession of child pornography.
David Dohrman admitted searching for and downloading child pornography and sending a video containing child sexual abuse material to his wife on Oct. 1, 2020.
The couple shared child pornography in chats and discussed a young girl they’d seen in a restaurant.
The video they shared resulted in a tip from Facebook to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. A St. Louis County Police Department detective then obtained a court-approved search warrant for the Dohrman’s home.
