Chambersburg Man Indicted For Crimes Against Children

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that David Paul Robinson, age 31, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, was indicted on October 7, 2020, by a federal grand jury on child pornography charges. 

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, the indictment alleges that Robinson produced images depicting the sexual abuse of a minor less than one year old (Counts 1 through  3), then distributed those images over the internet (Count 2). After obtaining a search warrant, federal law enforcement officers searched the defendant’s home and located additional images  and videos containing child pornography (Count 3). 

Homeland Security Investigations and the Pennsylvania State Police investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daryl F. Bloom is prosecuting the case. 

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal  Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
