Casper Child Pornographer Accused Of Sex With Girl
A Casper man recently sentenced for child pornography possession has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor, according to Natrona County Circuit Court records.
Kyle Steven Hebert was charged with one count sexual abuse of a minor in October, but only recently made his initial appearance in circuit court last week.
Hebert, who has sophisticated computer skills, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl to 10 years of imprisonment for possession of child pornography.
Hebert, who was born in 1970, also had previously been convicted of misdemeanor charge of sexual battery in Georgia in 2000.
Last fall, Hebert filed a motion to be released while awaiting trial, but prosecutors wanted him detained.
Skavdahl responded Hebert probably would appear in court as required, but he still posed a danger to the community if he was not detained, he wrote.
"In fact, two newly filed Sexual Assault charges recently brought in Natrona County adds to the Court's concern about dangerousness to the community," Skavdahl wrote. The judge denied Hebert's request to be released.
While the minutes mention two cases, only one appears available in circuit court.
The case began March 1, 2016, when a Casper police detective responded to a report from the Wyoming Department of Family Services stating a doctor found abnormal issues with a young girl, according to the detective's affidavit.
The detective asked the girl's mother to come to the police station for an interview, but she declined.
The detective also learned of the sexual abuse case in Georgia.
Meanwhile, the Wyoming Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force told the police department about finding child pornography on Hebert's computer, and that evidence led to his conviction.
Another girl, who had not been getting along with her own family, began living with Hebert's family, according to affidavit.
The girl, who was in high school at the time, told the detective Hebert had been in the military, and was a conspiracy theorist and paranoid, according to the affidavit. "(Hebert) would never take the same route to work ever, he would walk around the house if there were tracks in the house to see if there was someone lurking around."
In September 2009, the girl was treated for an eye infection and prescribed hydrocodone for the pain. She took half a pill, went to bed, and Hebert entered her room and began touching her.
After high school, she moved out of state.
Her family members later reported someone had tried to hack their cell phone account, and the detective told them to change their passwords.
Hebert's wife opposed the girl talking to police.
"'That thing you (the girl) told me that happened on Landmark, that doesn't need to be brought up and you don't need to help implicate him. I can't live without him. I love him,'" according to the affidavit.
The girl also told police that Hebert's wife told her in a phone call, "if she found out 'this was you, I'll poke holes in your story and destroy your life.'"
