PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Palm Beach County resident Kemal Yaslowitz will spend 15 years in Federal Prison, and then another 15 under the watchful eyes of the United States Department of Justice.

The DOJ issued this announcement on Tuesday:

Kemal Yaslowitz, 50, of Lake Worth, has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison, followed by 15 years of supervised release, for possessing and distributing child pornography.

Yaslowitz spent months on a social media messenger application sharing images and videos of children being sexually abused. During an online chat, Yaslowitz sought to exchange child pornography with a user whom Yaslowitz believed shared his interests. Yaslowitz sent the user multiple videos of children being sexually abused. 

Law enforcement investigated and arrested Yaslowitz. They determined that Yaslowitz stored hundreds of images of child pornography on his electronic devices and had shared 189 videos of child sexual abuse material on social media.   

Juan Antonio Gonzalez, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and Robert M. DeWitt, Acting Special Agent in Charge, FBI Miami announced the sentence imposed in West Palm Beach by U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg.
