Dublin man indicted on 134 counts

Virginia State Police arrested a Dublin man Tuesday on 134 additional child pornography charges.
Clinton C. Quesenberry, 45, of Lee Highway was arrested last October and then indicted in May on 18 counts of possession of child pornography. Last week a grand jury returned 134 more indictments, bringing the total number of charges against Quesenberry to 152.
Possession of child pornography is a Class 6 felony, carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison on each count. That means Quesenberry faces up to 760 years in prison if convicted of all counts.
Quesenberry was being held in New River Valley Regional Jail Wednesday without bond. He was taken into custody at his home around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday.
The investigation into Quesenberry began in October when the Dublin State Police office received information from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force that a computer at the Dublin residence was being used to download “large quantities” of child pornography. Police said Quesenberry was identified as the “owner and user” of the computer.
According to First Sergeant Mike Honaker, a search warrant was obtained for the residence Oct. 16 as the result of an investigation by area Trooper D. M. Reece.
“Our initial encounter with Quesenberry and his computers allowed us to find eighteen images of child pornography,” Honaker said. At that time Troopers R. P. Church and A. W. Crigger arrested Quesenberry, but the man was later released from custody on bond.
“This was just the beginning though because our subsequent forensic examination of Quesenberry’s computers and thumb drives produced 134 more pictures, including two videos of small children engaged in indescribable sexual situations,” Honaker added. “We took the results of our investigation to the Grand Jury on July 9” and the 134 additional indictments were returned against Quesenberry.
A Sept. 16 trail has been scheduled in Pulaski County Circuit Court on the 18 charges initially filed.
The remaining indictments returned by last week’s grand jury have been sealed by the court and will not be made public for several weeks so as to give authorities an opportunity to apprehend the suspects.
