Cocoa Man Sentenced To 15 Years For Producing Child Pornography
Orlando, FL - U.S. Attorney Robert E. O'Neill announces that U.S. District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell yesterday sentenced Anthony Truett Price (47, Cocoa) to 15 years in federal prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release, for producing and possessing child pornography. The court also ordered him to forfeit his camera and computer equipment and to register as a sexual predator. Price pled guilty on January 27, 2012.
According to court documents, in December 2010, Price took sexually explicit photos of a 6-year-old child. Relatives of Price led investigators to pictures that Price had stored on his computer and had hidden in the woods.
This case was investigated by the Child Exploitation Task Force for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations, the Cocoa Police Department, and Brevard County Sheriff's Office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tanya Davis Wilson.
This 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, 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.
