John David Guy Nishwitz, 44, has been charged in Yellowstone County District Court with four counts of child sex abuse. The charges followed an investigation by the Montana Division of Criminal Investigation that allegedly linked Nishwitz to thousands of photos and videos depicting child rape.

From January through April 2022, according to charging documents, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received more than a dozen tips of an online user uploading child sex abuse material.

The non-profit is mandated by Congress to combat child abuse and human trafficking, and maintains its CyberTipline for the public and electronic service providers to report any instances of child exploitation online. A Montana DCI agent investigated the 13 NCMEC tips and allegedly connected them to accounts belonging to Nishwitz.
