Georgia Man, Daniel Nolan Devor, Pleads Guilty To Conspiracy To Produce Child Pornography

DANIEL NOLAN DEVOR, age 40, a resident of Brunswick, Georgia, pled guilty today before U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown, to conspiracy to produce child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Allen Polite, Jr.

According to court documents, in November 2013, DEVOR was arrested by special agents with the United States Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (“HSI”) after they determined that DEVOR was responsible for creating and posting videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children on the Internet.  DEVOR has been in custody since his arrest.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 17, 2014.  Conspiracy to produce child pornography carries a mandatory minimum sentence of not less than fifteen (15) years and a maximum penalty of thirty (30) years imprisonment, supervised release of not less than five years up to life, and DEVOR will have to register as a sex offender.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
