Prosecutors said Diebold was arrested in January 2012 after an online investigation by Wheaton detectives led them to the man's home. At the time of his arrest, prosecutors said Diebold had three computers in the home that were used to download, store and disseminate pornographic videos involving boys and girls younger than 13.

Diebold originally faced three counts of aggravated child pornography and two counts of child pornography, and six to 58 years in prison. Prosecutors, however, dropped all but one child pornography charge in exchange for his guilty plea.
