LOUISIANA MAN CONVICTED OF
PRODUCING AND POSSESSING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

WASHINGTON – Paul W. Miller of Denham Springs, La., was convicted late yesterday of two counts of producing and one count of possessing child pornography, announced Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division and United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr. of the Middle District of Louisiana.

Miller, 44, was convicted by a federal jury following a three-day trial. United States District Judge James J. Brady presided over the trial.

Evidence presented at trial showed that from October 2007 to May 2008, Miller sexually abused a 12-year-old girl and an 11-year-old girl and produced numerous photographs of the abuse. According to trial evidence, forensic examination of Miller’s computer revealed that Miller had used his computer to print and possess numerous images of child pornography, including both the images of child pornography he had produced and images of other child victims.

United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr., stated, “It is loathsome that there are people who treat our children in the way this defendant victimized these children. Rest assured that we will do everything in our power to prosecute these predators to the fullest extent under the law.”

Miller faces a maximum statutory sentence of 30 years in prison for each count of production of child pornography and 10 years in prison for the possession of child pornography count.

The case is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney Alecia Riewerts Wolak of the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) and Assistant United States Attorney Richard L. Bourgeois Jr. of the Middle District of Louisiana. The investigation was conducted by the FBI, the Denham Springs Police Department, and the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office.
