A Denver-area doctor was arrested on child pornography charges, according to an announcement from the U.S. attorney for the district of Colorado. 31 year-old Justin Bowen Neisler, is in federal custody after being arrested on March 13th for alleged crimes related to the transportation of child pornography.
Neisler is accused of uploading child pornography to the social media network, Tumblr, after officials from the social media company reported an IP address later discovered to be connected to his home, to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children back in October.
The arrest followed a search of his home in Cherry Creek where authorities found cameras, hard drives and data storage cards. In a statement, the U.S. attorney’s office indicated that “the investigation is ongoing into the alleged offense and other federal criminal child exploitation offenses, including the production of child pornography”.
Licensed to practice medicine since 2016 in both Georgia and Colorado, Neisler was a family medical practitioner affiliated with Centura Health, and worked in Westminster at the St. Anthony north Family Medicine 84th Clinic. In an official statement, Centura has said that Neisler was fired upon the company having heard of his arrest, and that hospital officials were ‘deeply disturbed and saddened” by the news of the alleged crimes.
According to the U.S. attorney’s office, if convicted, Neisler will face a fine of up to $250,000 and between five to twenty years of prison time.
The FBI is asking that people with information related to this case call 303-629-7171 (ext. 1) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

There is a great deal of respect and trust that we give to our doctors. Highly trained professionals, we expect our doctors to be trustworthy authorities dedicated to our well being. As such, we trust them with deeply personal information about, and access to, our bodies. When doctors abuse this trust it’s devastating, and the repercussions can last for years.
