Domestic Abuse Leads To Child Porn Guilty Plea


A 31-year-old East Helena man, who came to the attention of law enforcement officials during an alleged domestic dispute with his wife, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to receiving and possessing child pornography.

Barry Armbrister is in custody, awaiting sentencing on Sept. 24. He faces a mandatory minimum of five years in prison, and possibly up to 20 years, as well as a $250,000 fine and a lifetime under supervision.


According to information from the U.S. Attorney’s office, Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the Armbrister residence, to investigate a report of domestic violence.

Once there, Armbrister’s wife said he had grabbed her and thrown her against the wall when she tried to talk to him about a picture he had posted of himself on a computer site.

The wife allegedly told the officer that she had observed Armbrister engage in sexual acts with female children both in his residence and in vehicles, and that when her two girls were 14 and 7, they told her Armbrister had molested them.
