The United States Secret Service began investigating Brillhart in early February of 2013 after he connected to a file sharing program that is known for sharing images and video of child pornography.

In the complaint, while Brillhart was being interview by USSS, he stated that he believes that child pornography material should not be illegal and that he copies any material to a DVD to preserve the information.

A review of one DVD found in Brillhart's apartment found more than 27,000 images.

While the complaint has been filed, Brillhart has yet to have an initial appearance in federal court.
