A Yukon man has been sentenced to serve five years in prison after Canadian County investigators found hundreds of images and videos of child pornography at his home.

Walter William Stumpf, 68, was recently convicted in Canadian County District Court on two counts of aggravated possession of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

Stumpf, of NW 101st in Yukon, pleaded no contest May 28 to the felony charges filed against him in September 2019.

At Stumpf’s Surrey Hills home, Canadian County sheriff’s investigators had found more than 500 images and videos – including 34 DVDs of nudist movies involving children as young as two years old.

Canadian County Special Judge Charles Gass, at the May 28th court hearing, sentenced Stumpf to serve five years in state Department of Corrections’ custody and a 10-year suspended sentence.

All three counts will run concurrently and Stumpf was given credit for time served.

After his release from state prison, Stumpf will be supervised by the DOC with sex offender conditions.

Stumpf was booked Sept. 24, 2019 at the Canadian County Jail after being arrested by sheriff’s deputies.

Canadian County sheriff’s investigators had conducted a forensic examination of the electronic devices seized from Stumpf’s home.

That is when they found the images of child pornography he had uploaded through AOL and Yahoo email accounts.

After Stumpf was identified as user of the accounts, sheriff’s investigators obtained a search warrant for his home.

YES, THAT’S ILLEGAL

Details about what they found were included in a Canadian County sheriff investigator’s report.

Stumpf told deputies he enjoyed watching nudist videos.

He said he did not believe nudist videos of prepubescent children – where the camera focused on the private parts of children – was illegal, according to the report.

Investigators found two flash drives plugged into his computer that he admitted using to download videos. The flash drives contained multiple images of prepubescent children nude.

Also recovered on Stumpf’s desktop computer were sexual fantasy stories between himself and children.

Sheriff’s investigators learned that Stump visited websites featuring stories on kidnapping, raping, torturing, and killing children, the report states.
