A former Department of Justice information technology specialist has been sentenced to federal prison for possession of child pornography.
Robert Thomas Darenberg, 34, was sentenced to 48 months in federal prison. He has also been ordered to pay $15,000.00 in restitution, serve 10 years of supervised release following his prison term, and register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
During their investigation, investigators discovered that Darenberg’s personal computer contained approximately 1,630 images of child
pornography, including approximately 270 videos, that had been encrypted in an attempt to conceal the evidence. He had been employed by the Department of Justice at the time, but is no longer employed by them.
