Repeat sex offender from Linwood sentenced for distributing child porn

Crime

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KSNW) – A 47-year-old Kansas man with a prior rape conviction was sentenced Thursday to 197 months in federal prison for distributing child pornography, and ordered to pay $95,000 in restitution, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.

James Minter, Linwood, pleaded guilty to one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that law enforcement received a report from CyberTipline that he had uploaded a file containing child pornography via the internet. Investigators tracked the upload to a Minter’s home in Linwood.

More than 1,000 images and 200 videos depicting the sexual abuse of children were seized from Minter’s devices. In 1998, Minter was convicted of rape and criminal sodomy after assaulting a 5-year-old child. He was released from prison in May 2018.
