Press Release -- David M. Ketchmark, Acting United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Golden, Missouri, man was sentenced in federal court today for producing child pornography and possessing counterfeit currency.
Timothy C. Stringer, 35, of Golden, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Greg Kays to 35 years in federal prison without parole. Stringer was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the sexual exploitation of a minor, which is the statutory maximum penalty, and five years in prison for possessing counterfeit currency, with the court ordering those sentences be served consecutively.
On April 23, 2012, Stringer pleaded guilty to using a 15-year-old minor to produce child pornography. Stringer admitted that he took pornographic photos of the minor with two cell phones and a digital camera between Feb. 6 and June 14, 2010. The images produced by the cell phones and camera included photos of Stringer and the minor engaged in sex.
On April 17, 2012, Stringer pleaded guilty to possessing nine counterfeit $100 bills.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Randall D. Eggert. It was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service Administration, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Barry County Sheriff’s Department and the Cassville Police Department.
