Orangevale man indicted on federal charges of child pornography distribution




A federal grand jury at U.S. District Court in Sacramento returned an indictment for an Orangevale man on the distribution of child pornography. This indictment was issued on Thursday, October 31 for 33-year old Daniel Wayne Benner.

According to the indictment, Benner distributed child pornography between July 3-5, using the Kik Messenger app. Benner used a smartphone, the internet, and Kik Messenger to distribute a video and still images depicting minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct to a person located in Arkansas.

It is also alleged Benner’s publicly accessible Facebook profile includes a picture of a “My Little Pony” costume with a caption reading, “Rainbow Dash is looking to come to your birthday party and she brings candy and music … contact me for quotes / She will travel anywhere in Sacramento County.” Benner stated that he and two friends were going to start a birthday party business but were unable to secure any customers.

If convicted, Benner faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and potentially a lifetime of supervised release. Benner is held at the Sacramento County Jail.
