35-year-old Allen TX man sentenced to 25 years

Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis announced that Robert Kessler, 35, of Allen, was sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to 10 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

Willis said: “Child pornographers must face the consequences of exploiting children, especially those without a voice.”

In 2018, Collin County Sheriff’s Office investigators initially found Kessler in possession of approximately 6,000 images and videos depicting child pornography.

Police said further investigation revealed that Kessler possessed more 90,000 images of children ranging from toddlers to early teens being sexually abused or exploited.

After reviewing Kessler’s images, law enforcement identified approximately 6,200 known victims listed on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children database.

After hearing several hours of testimony as well as reviewing the evidence, Judge Tom Nowak assessed 10 year sentences on Counts 1 and 2 to run consecutively. This is the maximum punishment allowable by law for these crimes.

Judge Nowak then assessed 5 year sentences on the remaining counts, to begin after the first two prison sentences are served, for a total punishment of 25 years in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Shannon Miller prosecuted the case, aided by District Attorney Investigators Chris Meehan and Billy Lanier, and Collin County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Lee McMillian.

Police report: 44-year-old Garland man charged with Plano home burglaries

By David Tilley, Plano Police Department

Plano, along with several other cities around, have been experiencing some residential burglaries that targeted Asians. Our detectives, along with those from the Richardson Police Department, worked tirelessly to identify and later arrested 44-year old Dien Ba Ngo from Garland, Texas.

As a result of their hard work, they were also about to located property taken from several other burglaries in different cities. Some of these offenses date to 2018.

The method of operation of this subject was to knock on the front door to see if anyone is home. If he received no response, he would then walk around back and break in to commit his theft.

I know we have talked about this before but if someone comes up to your home you are not expecting and you don’t know them, do not open the door but do answer it.

Announce that you are there behind the locked door asking what they want. There have been incidents reported where someone was home and never responded to the door only to find out later it was a burglar breaking through a back window.

In addition, make sure those back gates are locked. Criminals are looking for the easy target.

If you want to know how to make your home more burglar-proof, contact our Crime Prevention Unit at 972-941-2431 and set up a FREE Home Security Assessment.

All it takes is about an hour or so to get some great tips on ways you can “harden the target” at your home.
