San Luis Obispo County Sheriff deputies arrested a 51-year-old Paso Robles man Tuesday for allegedly distributing child porn.

After receiving tips that Eugene Virgil Rominger was downloading and then distributing child porn, deputies served a search warrant at his home in the 2900 block of Little Creek Lane in Paso Robles. Detectives seized computers, external hard drives and thumb drives which contained several hundred images and videos of pre-pubescent children engaged in sexual acts.

Sheriff officials said the images appear to have been downloaded from the internet and then distributed.

Deputies arrested Rominger on suspicion of possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.

    Hoping child porn perps receive the same treatment as child molesters do in prison.

    Peggy Sanford, Public Information Officer for the U.S. Attorney’s Office says “Victims will have to live not only with the memories of what has been done to them, but also knowing that their worst moments have been memorialized in images and videos, some of which have been shared around the world over the Internet.”

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Jacquelyn M. Hutzell says “Producers of child pornography consistently receive and deserve substantial sentences of imprisonment, including sentences that willl likely result in the defendant serving the remainder of his or her natural life in federal prison. The children depicted in that imagery are also real victims, and these innocent children have names. Indeed, the victimization of those innocent children continues to live on with an insidious vitality through the perverted behavior of certain people who each and every time they receive and distribute imagery of a naked child, they proliferate the available quantity of the material.”

    Who set that bail so low? Maybe we need to take a closer look at that too!

    Is it just my observation, or do the worst of the worst kiddie porn creeps often seem to have the goatee-dirtbag chin beard? Ditto for drug dealer suspect mug shots.

    Bail shoulda been 35 million; kiddie porn is unfathomable and the lowest of the low.

    $35,000 bail? That’s all? No worries he’ll be out in a day or two – whether he posts bail or not.This is so disgusting.
