Rocklin Man Facing Child Porn Charges

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Rocklin man was arraigned Tuesday on four counts of sharing, receipt and possession of child pornography.

Barry C. Steiber, 52, pleaded not guilty and was released on $25,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for January 30 before U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller.

A federal grand jury returned a four-count indictment Thursday charging Steiber. According to the indictment, Steiber amassed a collection of images from 2008 to 2009 depicting the sexual exploitation of children and traded those images with other people over the Internet. Court documents indicate that a computer recovered from his home in 2009 was found to contain thousands of images of child pornography.

The case is the product of an investigation by the Sacramento FBI and the Department of Justice’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section.

It’s part of the Department of Justice’s ongoing Project Safe Childhood initiative, which was launched to increase federal prosecutions of sexual predators of children and to reduce the number of Internet crimes against children.

    Why is this POS out on bail? He had THOUSANDS of images of child porn on his computer — THOUSANDS! He is not fit to walk the streets.

    I’m, curious. If they found the porn in 2009, why is it that he is only being charged at the end of 2011???

      Because the police are allowed to watch while he doe this for as long a they want to “make sure” he is doing it. That is why he was allowed to collect thousands of photos. If they would have picked him up two years ago, it wouldn’t have looked as good for them getting a guy that has thousands compared to say, ten or twenty!
      It is all about publicity. They could have stopped this long ago.

    The perverts should have their sex organs moved to their foreheads 😉

  5. lets have some straight talk says:

    25000 bail! And I specifically remember the ‘big case’ where someone was investigated for a year and got 500,000 bail for hacking and collections of pics.
    There is no consistency, We have no justice system, only a legal system that is abhorrent..
    Police need to stop ‘watching’ and letting these perps gather more charges thru out the years. They need to arrest them even with ONE charge! Letting our children be threatened for years just to make themselves look good is BS!
    And letting the courts get away with these inconsistencies is also BS
