Rocklin man arraigned on child pornography charges

A 52-year-old Rocklin man has been arrested on child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury last week returned a four-count indictment charging Barry C. Steiber with sharing, receipt and possession of child pornography, according to a Department of Justice news release.

According to the indictment, in 2008 and 2009 Steiber amassed a collection of images 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 contained thousands of images of child pornography.

Steiber entered a not guilty plea during his arraignment today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Dale A. Drozd. He was ordered released on $25,000 unsecured signature bond and special conditions. His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 30 before U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Sacramento and the Department of Justice's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section.
