BATON ROUGE, LA – United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr. announced today that U.S. District Court Chief Judge Brian A. Jackson sentenced Brad J. Case, age 30, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to a term of imprisonment of 96 months and 20 years supervised release after imprisonment. Case had previously pled guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography.
On May 8, 2011, Case distributed 25 images of child pornography to an undercover Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) through the internet using a peer-to-peer file sharing program. The FBI was able to trace the source of the child pornography to an apartment located in Baton Rouge and rented by Case. On October 12, 2011, the FBI executed a search warrant at Case’s apartment and seized, among other things, a computer belonging to Case. A forensic examination of Case’s computer revealed several hundred images and numerous videos depicting child pornography.
This matter was investigated by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The matter was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Chris Dippel.
