JC man pleads guilty to child porn charge

A Junction City man pleaded guilty Monday to a federal child pornography charge, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Scott Deppish, 43, Junction City, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of accessing child pornography with intent to view. In his plea, he admitted that that on Feb. 12, 2013, investigators served a search warrant and seized his desktop computer and two lose hard drives. They found images depicting prepubescent children engaged in sexual conduct. They also found images of a known victim in what is referred to as the “Abby” series, which were taken in the state of Idaho. They depict a very young prepubescent female engaged in sexual conduct with an adult male.

Sentencing is set for July 7. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000. Grissom commended the Junction City Police Department, Homeland Security Investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Kenney for their work on the case.
