Toby L. Rice – Pedophile advertised babysitting services on Craigslist

A former Northland emergency medical technician was sentenced in federal court today to 20 years in prison for producing, distributing and possessing child pornography.

Toby L. Rice, 34, of Blue Springs, had worked for the North Kansas City Fire Department. Rice was also ordered to pay $5,600 in restitution to his victim. Following his release from prison, Rice will be subject to supervised release for the rest of his life.

Rice pleaded guilty in April to using a 5-year-old girl whom he was babysitting in his home to engage in sexually explicit conduct for producing child pornography. Rice, also known by his online name, “babysitting_uncle,” distributed one of those photographs over the Internet to at least two other individuals, and distributed multiple images of additional child pornography among a group of individuals, between April 1 and Aug. 10, 2007. Rice also admitted that he was in possession of child pornography on Aug. 24, 2007.

Rice advertised on Craigslist, offering himself as a babysitter for more children.

Law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Rice’s residence on Aug. 24, 2007, and recovered a Kodak digital camera, which had multiple images of the 5-year-old girl.
