Civilian Contractor In Iraq Arraigned in Porn Case

David Harper Tulsa World May 5, 2011

A 57-year-old man was arraigned Wednesday in federal court in Tulsa after being charged with possessing computerized images of child pornography while he worked as a civilian contractor in Iraq.

Keith George Strimple was charged under a federal statute that establishes jurisdiction over American citizens employed by the U.S. armed forces outside the borders of the United States.

Strimple is charged with two counts of possessing images of minors engaged in sexual explicit activity from April 27, 2007, until Sept. 19, 2007, while he was in Iraq, according to the indictment, which was posted on the court’s website Wednesday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Cyran said Strimple was arrested Wednesday by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Strimple pleaded not guilty during a hearing later that day in Tulsa and was released on $5,000 bond.

Cyran said Strimple would face a maximum of 10 years in prison per count if convicted
