Pittsburgh Man Sentenced To 15 Years In Federal Prison For Producing Child Porn

A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced in federal court to 15 years’ incarceration, to be served consecutively to a sentence of 10 to 20 years’ incarceration imposed in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, followed by 10 years supervised release on his conviction of production and attempted production of material depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.

United States District Judge William S. Stickman, IV imposed the sentence on Matthew Joseph Gourley, age 49, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

According to information presented to the court, on January 6, 2020, Gourley forced Minor A, a minor female victim, to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction, namely, a digital image and a video, depicting Minor A engaging in sexually explicit content.

Gourley’s conduct was discovered by law enforcement during an online undercover operation.

Prior to imposing the sentence, Judge Stickman stated “there is no room to debate the seriousness” of Gourley’s crime, calling Gourley’s documentation of his sexual abuse of Minor A “heinous, inexcusable, abhorrent.”

Assistant United States Attorney Heidi M. Grogan prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
