Florida Man Indicted for Receiving Child Sexual Abuse Material

Release Date: April 12, 2024

OCALA, Florida — A Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Orlando investigation has led to an indictment charging a Florida man with two counts of receipt of child sexual abuse material.

If convicted on both counts, Kyle Burbank, 32, of Belleview, faces a maximum penalty of 40 years in federal prison, including a five-year minimum mandatory term of imprisonment on each count.

According to court documents, between Jan. 5 and 17, Burbank received five video files of child sexual abuse over the internet from a 12-year-old child in another state. A review of Burbank’s social media accounts revealed multiple online interactions with other minors. Burbank was subsequently arrested by federal agents on April 4. He is currently in custody pending the resolution of this case.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by HSI Orlando, with assistance from the Clinton County, Indiana, Sheriff’s Office and the Rossville, Indiana, Police Department. It will be prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah Janette Swartzberg.

It is another case brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the U.S. attorneys’ offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children and to identify and rescue child victims.
