Agents received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children saying someone using an IP address tied to Neisler’s home uploaded sexually explicit content of children. That content was uploaded onto a social media platform.

Neisler could face at least five years of prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted. He also could face a minimum of five years of supervised release.

Centura issued a statement which reads in part:

We are deeply disturbed and saddened that one of our former physicians in our Family Residency Program at St. Anthony North Family Medicine 84th Clinic, Dr. Justin Neisler, has been charged with crimes related to transportation of child pornography. Upon learning of his arrest by the FBI, his employment was terminated. We are troubled by these allegations which are in stark contrast to our mission and core values. There is simply no place for any behavior that exploits children in our community, or for any individual that circumvents the systems and processes we have in place to ensure their safety.

Anyone with more information about the investigation is encouraged to contact the FBI by sending an email to DENVERMD@FBI.GOV.
