Neiheisel faces a minimum mandatory penalty of from five to 40 years in federal prison and a potential life term of supervised release. In addition, authorities allege that before August 14, 2015, James exposed himself to a child he knew and solicited a sexual act from that child, who was younger than 13 at the time. A sentencing date has not yet been set. According to evidence and testimony presented at trial, an FBI task force officer conducted an online investigation of individuals who were using the internet to trade child pornography.

Federal law enforcement officials executed the search warrant at Riley's residence on April 11 and a preliminary examination of the device revealed numerous files with photos and videos of child pornography and during a voluntary interview, Riley allegedly admitted to downloading child pornography, according to authorities.

Court records show that James, a retired math teacher, was indicted in 2016 and he pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of producing child pornography, possession of child pornography involving children under the age of 13, and solicitation of a sexual act.

The sentence given to James McGlothlin on Monday will run at the same time as an 18-year sentence imposed on him last month in Clackamas County. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney D. Rodney Brown.
