Dale John Jamieson (DOB 10/18/1994) has been indicted by a grand jury on receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

Case detectives with the Northern Nevada Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (which includes detectives from Sparks Police Department, Washoe County Sheriff's Office, Reno Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Nevada Attorney General's Office, and the U.S. Attorney's Office) had been investigating the case since August of 2019. They served a search warrant on Jamieson's residence in November after an extensive operation targeting the downloading and sharing of child pornography.

Jamieson had more than 10,000 images and videos on his devices.

Because of COVID-19 delays, a grand jury didn't hear the case until September 3, 2020. The grand jury returned the indictment that same day.

Jamieson is awaiting trial in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada in late 2020.
