25-year veteran of the FBI accused of trading child porn

A Indiana man who spent 25 years with the FBI specializing in counterterrorism and bombing investigations has been charged with distributing and possessing child pornography, Fox 59 reports.

Authorities say 54-year-old Donald J. Sachtleben openly traded child porn using the e-mail address "pedodave69@yahoo.com." 

Fox 59 reports in one instance, Sachtleben allegedly sent someone an e-mail containing nine images featuring child pornography and told the recipient, "I have even better ones if you'd like."

Police say they recovered approximately 30 videos and images containing child pornography from Sachtleben's computer. He faces as many as 30 years in prison if convicted.

Sachtleben is currently employed in the Department of Forensic Sciences at Oklahoma State University. He spent over 25 years as a special agent bomb technician in the FBI before retiring in 2008. He specialized in counterterrorism and bombing investigations.

U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett told Fox 59 he was disappointed a former federal agent would commit such a crime, but that the arrest proves no one is above the law.

"No matter who they are, no matter who they know, no matter where they come from, the standards are the same," Hogsett said.
