A Shawnee man charged with 12 felony counts in a child sexual abuse and pornography case was sentenced Friday and will spend five life sentences plus another 20 years in prison, with those terms running consecutively.

David D. Shoopman, 29, was charged in Pottawatomie County District Court in January, 2017 with 10 counts. The case was amended to 12 counts in March 2017.

Filed were six counts of manufacturing child pornography, five counts of sexual abuse to a child under age 12 and one count of possession of child pornography.

The charges alleged the offenses occurred on or between Jan. 8, 2014 and Jan. 10, 2017, with Shoopman initially entering a not guilty plea.

During a court appearance on Jan. 4, Shoopman changed his plea to guilty and the matter was set for blind plea sentencing Friday before District Judge John Canavan.

In the five counts of sexual abuse to a child under age 12, Shoopman received life sentences for each count, running consecutively, meaning one sentence will be served at a time. In the six counts of manufacturing of child pornography and the possession of child pornography count, Shoopman received a 20-year sentence for each count, with those sentences running concurrently with each other.

First Assistant District Attorney Adam Panter, who said this was one of the worst cases of child sexual abuse that the office has prosecuted, said video footage of the acts were part of the evidence in this case.

In the manufacturing counts, charges show Shoopman was accused of manufacturing photos depicting a child under the age of 18 in sexually explicit poses or acts. In the sexual abuse counts, charges allege he abused a minor child and the possession count alleges he had pictures and a video.

A probable cause arrest warrant filed at the onset of this case shows Shoopman visited a friend’s home on Jan. 8, 2017 and allegedly left a digital camera there. The friend contacted police two days later after finding the digital camera while cleaning. The arrest warrant shows the friend turned the camera on out of curiosity and saw inappropriate videos and photos.

Police located Shoopman and following an interview, he was arrested and booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center, where he has remained jailed since his arrest last year.

He will remain jailed in Shawnee until he can be transferred to a Department of Corrections facility.

In a related case involving two felony counts, Danielle N. Shoopman, 28, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of enabling child sexual abuse. Her case has been continued until May.
