Guilty plea in Moniteau Co. child porn case

A California, Mo., man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to producing child pornography.

Timothy Lee Senkowski, Sr., 49, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Nanette K. Laughrey to the charge contained in a July 14, 2010, federal indictment.

According to the plea agreement, Senkowski turned over two computers to investigators with the California Police Department.

Investigators recovered numerous images of child pornography of a 12-year-old girl, as well as the beginning framework for the construction of a Web site that was intended to feature photographs of the child victim.

Co-defendant Priscilla Ramirez Flores, 40, of Clarksburg, Mo., pleaded guilty to the same charge on April 15, 2010.

According to court documents, Flores told law enforcement officers that she was involved in taking some of the photos and had not objected to the photos being taken.

Flores also told officers that she had begun the construction of the Web site.

Under federal statutes, Senkowski and Flores are each subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison without parole, up to a sentence of 30 years in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $250,000.

Sentencing hearings will be scheduled after the completion of presentence investigations by the United States Probation Office.
