(St. Louis) A man from Jefferson County was sentenced to federal prison Wednesday while at the federal courthouse in St. Louis.
52-year-old David John Dohrman was given a nine year prison sentence for possessing and sharing child pornography with his wife.
Dohrman was also ordered to pay $6,000 in restitution to victims who appeared in the images.
Dohrman’s wife, 49-year-old Jacquelin Michelle Dohrman was sentenced to seven years in prison last month for possession of child pornography.
A news release from the U.S. Attorney’s office says David Dohrman admitted searching for and downloading child porn and sending a video containing child sexual abuse material to his wife on October 1st of 2020.
The couple shared child porn in chats and discussed a young girl they had 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.
