The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that the Former McConnellsburg High School Basketball Coach, 35 year old Dane Robert Pollock, was sentenced on Tuesday to 86 months imprisonment by U.S. District Court Judge Sylvia H. Rambo for receipt and distribution of child pornography.
Following Pollock’s seven-year sentence, Judge Rambo imposed a 10-year period of supervised release and a host of strict conditions Pollock must comply with, including having no unsupervised contact with minors under age 18, engaging in no contact with the victims and registering as a sex offender.
According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Pollock took sexually explicit, nude photographs and videos of at least one female student who was under the age of 18 years of age in 2016. During the investigation, agents identified other minor victims Pollock had exploited between 2011 and 2016, while Pollock was the basketball coach and athletic director.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Pennsylvania State Police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meredith A. Taylor prosecuted the case.
