Cary man imprisoned for 25 years on federal child porn charges

Posted September 25, 2013

— A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a Cary man to 25 years in prison followed by a lifetime of supervised release after the man pleaded guilty to charges of manufacturing and producing child pornography.

Kyle Martin Inch, 28, pleaded guilty to the crime May 21 after being indicted in February on three counts of production of child pornography, 10 counts of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Federal prosecutors say an online undercover investigation found that Inch distributed child porn numerous times between January 2011 and September 2011 and further found that he had "not only amassed a collection of hundreds of images and videos of child sexual abuse but had been recording his own sexual abuse of a child."

Last March, Cary police charged Inch with two counts of statutory rape, three counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of indecent liberties with a child for allegedly taking nearly 200 photos of a boy being sexually abused.

The status of his case on the local charges wasn't immediately clear Wednesday afternoon.

    "
    Porn pictures are getting people locked quicker than one can imagine. How is this affecting children when they don't have their hands on them in any way? They are not even around them, just the pictures. I wish they would go after the ones that are actually touching and around these children, etc." 678devilish

    This is truly frightening and extremely disturbing.

    WOW! I am not out of touch. Just wondering why people like you are not "out-rage" when children are actually raped, touch, abused, etc. You get the picture what I am saying. What do you think about the 40 something teacher who raped a 14 year old girl and the judge only gave him 31 days in jail. He should be in prison right now but he is a free man. Where is your out-rage on that and other cases?"

    This isn't a matter of simply having pictures. He raped a child to *create* child pornography.

    these stories the perp is from Cary."

    Don't believe that. These "perps" are everywhere in every nook and crannie. They are in your church, a friend of the family, the "uncle"; plus they have never had a record of such but yet continue to do what they do. Parents need to open their eyes wide when these certain men/women are around their children. Make it absolutely safe for your children if you care and love them.

    Seriously? Are you that out of touch? We're not talking about porn where adults haved consented to be filmed. We're talking about people who consume material and provide a market that require children to be raped, violated, and brutalized. Admittedly there's a special place in H-E-Double L for those who produce such material, but I personally see very little difference. Your comment is extremely disturbing.

    State sentences need to be CONSECUTIVE to federal sentences.

    Time for revamping the laws on this sort of crimes on children. Death penalty maybe? That would have been the case if it were my child anyway.

    Need to go back to about 200 years ago this man wouldn't be breathing right now. Once guilty, punishment was handed out withing a couple weeks. Might make some of these low life criminals think twice about their crimes.
