Port Orange Man Sentenced To More Than 7 Years For Receiving Child Pornography

Orlando, Florida -U.S. District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell sentenced Wilfred Reginald Breuer (50, Port Orange) to 7 years and six months in federal prison for receipt and possession of child pornography. The court also ordered Breuer to forfeit the computer he used to receive the child pornography and to serve a ten year term of supervised release following his incarceration. Breuer pleaded guilty on November 28, 2012.

According to court documents, Breuer received child pornography using a Peer to Peer shared directory. Breuer admitted to downloading child pornography images and videos for more than five years. A forensic examination of Breuer’s computer discovered 1,456 images and 343 movies of involving the sexual exploitation of prepubescent children.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the 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 locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
