Also Sentenced To 120 Months Supervised Release for Possession of Material Involving Sexual Exploitation Of Minors


According to a press release from the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, Samuel Nolan Doty 47, of Tahlequah, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment to run consecutive to a 7-year state prison sentence out of Cherokee County.

Doty was sentenced as a Felon in possession of a firearm, and 10 years of supervised release for Possession of certain material involving the sexual exploitation of minors.


The Indictment alleged that between on or about April 17, 2014, and on or about August 24, 2016, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, did knowingly possess, attempt to possess and access with intent to view matters which contained visual depictions, as that term is defined in Title 18, United States Code, Section 2256(5), the production of said visual depictions involved the use of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, as that term is defined in Title 18, United States Code, Sections 2256(2)(A)-(B), and said visual depictions were of such sexually explicit conduct and had been transported in interstate commerce by computer.


The charge arose from an investigation by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Marshal’s Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. U.S. Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “I commend the hard work of the county and federal law enforcement agencies that worked together. Without thorough investigations this agency would not have the ability to successfully prosecute cases.”


The Honorable James H. Payne, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the nonparoleable sentence will be served.


Assistant United States Attorney Edward Snow represented the United States.
