DENVER, Colo. -

A Douglas County man was sentenced to 40 years in prison for production of child prorography and transportation of child pornography.

Jeffrey Allan Mueller, 39, of Douglas County was convicted earlier this year.

During the course of the prosecution, the government identified at least 6 additional producers of child pornography, and were able to rescue approximately 35 additional child victims of ongoing sexual abuse who were depicted in images of child pornography. All of the children are now in a safe place. Also, at the time of Mueller's arrest, agents and officers rescued a minor child Mueller was using to produce child pornography. The child has since been relocated and is also in a safe place.

"Sexually abusing children to produce pornography is morally beyond the pale, and as this sentence justly reflects, subject to severe criminal punishment," said U.S. Attorney John Walsh. "Thanks to the dedication of Assistant U.S. Attorneys and the FBI, 35 children have been rescued from this horror, and over 6 men producing these images have been removed from their communities."

This case was investigated by the Denver FBI Innocent Images Task Force. The Parker Police Department and the Douglas County District Attorney's Office also participated and rendered assistance.
