He is to be sentenced on April 8 and faces up to 20 years behind bars.

According to a criminal complaint filed in US District Court for Wyoming, Wyoming DCI agents began receiving cyber tips in the fall of 2020. When agents began searching accounts associated with Culligan, they found more than 100 files depicting sex acts with children.

One example included in the complaint was a file depicting a girl, believed to be between 4- and 6-years-of-age performing a sex act on an adult male.

In addition to the incident involving child porn, the complaint also describes an incident involving a 14-year-old girl.

The complaint states the girl's mother found a letter from Culligan to the girl stating that he would miss fondling her and that he wanted to impregnate her.
