Kansas Resident-Clint Robert Schram Sentenced for Running Four Dark Web Child Exploitation Websites

Updated: Nov 24, 2023

Sentenced for operating exclusively on the dark web, each of these platforms was specifically designed to promote, distribute, and exchange explicit images and videos depicting the sexual exploitation of minors.




Clint Robert Schram, a resident of Kansas City, has been sentenced to life imprisonment today for his involvement in operating four websites dedicated to the dissemination of child sexual abuse materials. As per court records and evidence presented during the trial, Schram, aged 55, managed and maintained these websites from his residence.


Operating exclusively on the dark web, each of these platforms was specifically designed to promote, distribute, and exchange explicit images and videos depicting the sexual exploitation of minors.


Shockingly, one of these websites even permitted the posting of images featuring children as young as 2 years old, while another imposed no restrictions on the types of child sexual abuse content that could be shared. Schram actively advertised and circulated these illicit materials through the websites, and he also oversaw a network of "staff" members who assisted in their operation.



On May 10, Schram was found guilty by a federal jury on multiple charges, including engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, advertisement of child pornography, and conspiracy to advertise child pornography.


The announcement was made by Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole M. Argentieri of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Teresa A. Moore for the Western District of Missouri, Assistant Director Luis M. Quesada of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division, and Special Agent in Charge Stephen Cyrus of the FBI Kansas City Field Office.


The case was investigated by the FBI’s Child Exploitation Operational Unit and Kansas City Field Office, with assistance from FBI field offices and resident agencies in Portland, Oregon; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Poulsbo, Washington; Homeland Security Investigations’ offices in Burlington, Vermont, and Boston; and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section’s (CEOS) High Technology Investigative Unit.


Prosecution of the cases is being handled by CEOS Trial Attorney Kyle P. Reynolds and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Alison D. Dunning and David Luna for the Western District of Missouri, with assistance from the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices for the District of Oregon, District of Vermont, Northern District of Oklahoma, Western District of Washington, and Eastern District of Tennessee.


This case is part of Project Safe Childhood, an initiative launched in May 2006 by the Justice Department to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood utilizes federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children online, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
