Aurora man gets 20 years for child pornography

Date: March 27, 2008

An Aurora man charged in 2006 with trading child pornography through an exclusive Internet chat room, was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison.

Alan Jungels, 45, pleaded guilty to receiving, distributing and possessing child pornography in a deal with prosecutors in January. He is one of about 30 people in the U.S., Australia, Britain and Canada who were charged in connection with the "Kiddypics &Kiddyvids" chat room.

In March 2006, then-U.S. Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales announced in Chicago that federal authorities had shut down the chat room and that 27 people were charged in the U.S., Australia, Britain and Canada.

Prosecutors said Jungels used the screen name "Big-al-43895" when trading the pornography in chat rooms with titles such as "incest" and "daddy-daughter."
